Catalyzing health promoting strategies – Matching Diversity
As noted in other sections of the toolkits, post-secondary students, campuses, communities are diverse in a number of ways. The tools in this section are intended to assist in designing and ‘road testing’ early prototype designs against the particular diversity of students and settings in the particular context. The tools in this section can be used for either mental illness / disorders / addictions strategies or positive mental health strategies.
These tools are a starter set – as experience is gained, and initiatives can engage with more diversity, additional profiles and scenarios can be developed. Ideas can be posted on the community conversation section of the website so the post-secondary student mental health community can benefit from the range of experience in culturally competent approaches to ecological capacity building.
Tools in this section include:

- Student Academic Journey Map
- Systemic Mentally Healthy Campus Maturity Model
