Facing shortage of space, supports, CEGEP eyes student spaces for mental health facilities

May 29, 2018

The Journal de Montréal reports that Le Collège Ahuntsic is struggling to meet a 33% jump in demand for mental health supports over the last three years. Ahuntsic states that it will hire nine additional mental health workers over the next year, but that the CEGEP is also in need of additional space. Ahuntsic’s Director of Communications, Éric Léveillé, stated that the CEGEP is eyeing several spaces to accommodate service expansion, all of which are presently used by l’Association générale des étudiants du Collège Ahuntsic. Rizwan Khan, president of the Association, criticized the decision, stating that although the school critically needs better mental health supports, students also rely on the services currently in place.
