Complex Collaboration Model Toolkit

Complex collaborations are essential to promote mentally healthy campuses across Alberta. Originally developed to support Regional Hubs, collaborative groups that originated amidst the launch of the Alberta Post-Secondary Mental Health and Addictions Framework, this toolkit is adaptable to any collaboration: interdepartmental, regional, provincial, national, or international. The toolkit frames complex collaboration as a point of connection among individuals, teams, or organizations with complementary skills and resources willing to collaborate on a common objective; however, creating a shared approach for mutual gain is not an easy task. The complex collaboration model has been developed to provide some insights and approaches that weave together a variety of processes and theories to enhance the effectiveness of these complex collaborations.

This toolkit is hosted by Healthy Campus Alberta, a provincial community of practice committed to cultivating caring campus communities in Alberta. Originally developed by Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation (an initiative carried out by the Alberta Students Executive Council), the tools and toolkits are learning-focused, living documents that serve to support our community of practice.
