Championed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) in collaboration with the CSA Group, The National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students is an evidence-informed resource outlining flexible, voluntary guidelines to help post-secondary institutions (PSIs) support the mental health and well-being of their students. Since the Standard’s release in 2020, MHCC has been supporting the development of a tool called the Campus Mental Health Action Tracker – led by the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) – to help PSIs track their progress with the Standard. To date, 20 PSIs have signed up as the first group of initial users as part of soft launch to begin using the Tracker, and there is now an opportunity to expand its use to a larger (though still limited) number of users.
This webinar will include representatives of both the MHCC and SRDC speaking to the Campus Mental Health Action Tracker as a tool that can help PSIs institutions track their progress and opportunities over time, as they implement the Standard. It will also feature guest speakers piloting the Tracker from Lambton College and the University of Ottawa to share their experience with it and how it informed their work with the Standard. During this session, participants can expect to:
- Hear about the latest Standard implementation resources and how these can further support PSIs to build on their strengths and identify new areas for action.
- Gain an inside look of the Campus Mental Health Action Tracker with a demo of the tool.
- Glean insights on how the Standard and Tracker are being used by different types of PSIs.
Please note this webinar will not be recorded. A summary of the webinar, including presentation highlights and takeaways, will be shared with all those who register.
