HCA 2023 Wellness Summit: Summary, Resources, and Community Report

The HCA 2023 Wellness Summit took place June 13 & 14, 2023 at Red Deer Polytechnic in Red Deer, Alberta. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event by presenting, hosting and participating!

The theme of this year’s Summit, “Leading Change: It Starts with Us”, sought to inspire systemic change on post-secondary campuses at the individual, community, and institutional levels.

For more detail on the event, the sessions, and participant feedback, please read the Community Report.

The Community of Practice strives to create an inclusive, collaborative, and community-integrated approach to mental health and wellness on campuses. Change represents an opportunity to refocus our attention from discussion to action. In our unique leadership identities, how do we embrace the uncertainty and create improved systems of mental health promotion that address the complex needs of our communities? The interplay between individual and collection action empowers everyone to lead change: it starts with us!
