Thursday, February 25, 2021, 1:00 EST – 3:00 PM EST

Hosted by the Mental Health Commission of Canada in partnership with CACUSS, this workshop is part of a series of webinars for participants to continue learning about the new National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students. In this session, participants will consider aspects of the Standard that provide guidance to institutions to create supportive, safe, and inclusive post-secondary environments for everyone in their community.

Learning objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will have:

  1. Explored the elements that enable a supportive, safe, and inclusive learning environment,
  2. Learned about practical examples and supportive resources that are available, and
  3. Some of the latest tactics and innovative ways institutions have adapted during the pandemic to strive towards providing a supportive and safe learning environment for all.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), in collaboration with CSA Group (a global leader in standards development), has championed the development of the National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students.  This voluntary Standard is the first of its kind in the world; it builds on the exceptional work of Canada’s post-secondary institutions and seeks to inspire further actions through principle-led approaches. The MHCC has also designed a Starter Kit to support post-secondary institutions as they begin aligning with the Standard.
