National Campus Webinar:

Addressing Policy Through a Wellbeing Lens

Have you been thinking about and working on the call to action to embed mental health and wellbeing in all campus policies? 

You're invited to join us Thursday, February 11th at 10:00-11:30am PST for the National Campus Webinar discussion on "Addressing Policy Through a Wellbeing Lens."

Join other practitioners, policy makers, students, faculty and staff from across Canada for a dialogue about what it means to develop and review post-secondary policies from a wellbeing lens. We will explore current practices and resources relating to this topic, as well as connect with each other to share ideas, wisdom and opportunities to collaborate in this area further.

Jonny Morris, Senior Director of Policy, Research and Planning at the Canadian Mental Health Association British Columbia Division will be on hand to moderate the discussion.
Join the online community group (a National Incubator!) to participate in additional discussions, share resources and connect with other stakeholders who are interested in improving policies that impact student mental health and substance use.

Date: Thursday, February 11, 2016

Time: 10am - 11:30am (PST) 

*As promoted in alerts by the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS)*

Note - you do not need to be a CACUSS member to register and participate in this webinar.

"It is widely accepted that the broader organizational context has an impact on the wellness of those within it. Institutional structure and policies contribute to its culture by reinforcing certain values, beliefs and behaviours; and discouraging others. How a post-secondary institution is structured and its strategic goals, policies and practices therefore impact student mental health, which in turn, impacts student learning. Addressing this area requires assessment of the degree to which these organizational elements support student mental health and engage the whole student in the learning process." (National Guide to a Systemic Approach)
