*New* CACUSS 2019 Conference Program Stream 

The Best Practices Network in Canadian Ed. has collaborated with CACUSS to offer the mental health stream.

Evolving Perspectives on Campus Mental Health 

Mental health initiatives across Canadian campuses have undergone a paradigm shift over the past decade. Changing student needs have resulted in a re-think in the ways in which we develop policies and frameworks and deliver programs and services to support student and campus well-being. Over the past decade, campuses have increasingly adopted a health promotion perspective to create healthier campuses to support mental health and wellbeing (e.g., resilience, peer support, skill-building approaches). Campuses have also undergone a paradigm shift in downstream programming, including new service delivery models, use of technology, program evaluation, and community partnerships. This program stream will explore the successes, challenges, and the current state of mental health and wellbeing initiatives on Canadian campuses and for presenters to share emerging and best practices.
