Dal introduces Q‑Life resilience program for students

November 10, 2017

Dalhousie University has developed and introduced a new program called Q-life that aims to teach students about resilience. The program is the product of a three-year study conducted at the institution, and sees students take an assessment on their own stress and coping mechanisms, view a series of teaching videos, and engage with an online journal and question-based workbook to help them apply their learning to their own lives. “Now more than ever we need to offer innovative approaches to maintaining good health, which includes mental health,” says Verity Turpin, assistant vice-provost, Student Affairs. Q-Life is delivered entirely online, and only requires a total time commitment of 8-10 hours over 9 weeks for students. Dal
