Providing effective support for mental health challenges is one of the most pressing issues facing Ontario students on university and college campuses today. Government, educators, health-care providers and community organizations need to pull together to adopt a comprehensive approach that ensures students have access to support and services that address the spectrum of student mental health needs.
Ontario’s universities are committed to the well-being of our students. That’s why we are committed to:
Addressing mental health on campus – We offer an extensive suite of mental health services to respond to student needs, undertake mental health research and integrate mental health strategies into our governance models to ensure we’re able to respond and adapt to mental health challenges.
Partnering on mental health –We have partnered with colleges, students and mental health associations to develop an action plan on post-secondary mental health to help guide and support the delivery of mental health services across Ontario. We also co-founded the Centre for Innovation on Campus Mental Health, whose mission is to enhance the capacity of Ontario universities and colleges to support student mental health and well-being.
