New mental health strategy at York U

May 14, 2013

York University has released its new strategic plan for addressing mental health concerns among students and faculty. With the aim of being proactive, York U is focusing on creating a healthy environment for students and staff, one that confronts pressures before a mental health crisis is reached. Policy development and extending the campus’s ability to handle mental health concerns are part of the strategy to meet long-term goals. The promotion of a new software program, Mental Health EDU, will help faculty and staff learn to assist students in distress through varied approaches, based on the individual student’s comfort level.
