Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing Among Students in Higher Education: A Rapid ReviewMar 01, 2020 | The North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies
The North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies conducted a rapid scoping review of the literature on post-secondary institutions’ (PSI) initiatives for student mental health and wellbeing, in addition to government and public policy to support PSIs. The review describes current initiatives and government supports in both Canada and other select countries, ranging from campus psychoeducation courses to government mental health strategies. The review summarizes promising initiatives and describes key recommendations to improve PSI mental health on Canadian campuses, including incorporating mental health promotion into all components of post-secondary institutions, use and evaluation of best practices, adoption of technology to improve access, creating strategic partnerships, and mental health literacy training.
