National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary StudentsOct 08, 2020 | Mental Health Commission of Canada
In collaboration with CSA Group (a global leader in standards development), the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), has championed the development of the CSA Z2003:20 National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students.
Created by the CSA Technical Committee the voluntary Standard is the first of its kind in the world, building on the exceptional work of Canada’s post-secondary institutions and seeks to inspire further actions through principle-led approaches. The standard is meant to promote and strengthen student mental health and well-being to support student success.
The MHCC has also introduced a Starter Kit, with supportive resources for institutions to get started aligning their efforts with the Standard:
- To access your copy of the Standard, add the complimentary Standard to your cart and create a CSA Store account to download it
- Download the Starter Kit
- Join the community to access supportive resources. Create a separate account to access the CSA Community, where related resources are available in the Centre for Outreach, Resources and Engagement (CORE)
