Register now for our January events!

Dear Community of Practice Members,

As you know, positive student mental health is critical for academic and personal success throughout an individual’s post-secondary education.  As such, students, staff, faculty, administrators and community members are increasingly recognizing the importance of designing supportive environments to enable students to thrive.  Specifically, policies, practices, university culture, and academic settings require systemic approaches with all members of the campus community contributing to the dialogue and action.

As students are vital to our Community of Practice working towards creating a healthy post-secondary culture, we are hosting a Provincial Student Event in conjunction with our upcoming Social Learning & Launch Event.  We are inviting all student leaders who are interested in promoting mental health on campus to join us for a strategic planning session with the newly formed group of student leaders and recent alumni from campuses across British Columbia.  

Please forward this invitation to student leaders on your campus or within your organization who might be interested in getting involved with Healthy Minds/Healthy Campuses.  Scroll down to learn more about our upcoming events and register today!
