Embedded Counselling Models: A Tale of 10 CitiesJun 20, 2019 | Concordia University, University of British Columbia, University of Toronto
Many institutions are either adopting or considering adopting embedded counselling models that use a “hub-and-spoke” approach to deliver mental health services in faculties and/or specialty departments such as indigenous centers and residence dorms.
This presentation discusses 10 case studies of faculty-embedded counselling models from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador, and the drivers for this model of service delivery, successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
Please contact the presenters if you would like to share your experiences to help inform the development of a Canadian Tool-Kit on Faculty-Embedded Counselling Models.
