February 27, 2020

Colleges Ontario, the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, Ontario's Universities, and the College Student Alliance have released a report on the mental wellness challenges facing Ontario's postsecondary students today. "Foundations for Promoting Mental Wellness in Campus Communities" provides updates on the organizations' 2017 action plan for addressing postsecondary student mental health. They also offer three key recommendations for a proactive approach to addressing mental wellness issues: taking a 'whole-of-community' approach to student mental health and well-being; ensuring that all students have access to timely, effective, culturally relevant, and flexible on-campus mental health care; and promoting life-long mental health and well-being for all Ontarians through harm reduction and access to mental health care.
