Places, Settings

Places or settings such as campuses, workplaces, churches, as well as neighbourhoods, communities and whole societies are where persons, and persons in relationships and all dimensions of environment all come together. The relationships, and the existence of an organizing mechanism (an organization) make it helpful to operationalize health-enabling environment strategies.

The Mentally Healthy Campus Knowledge Map is one tool to identify the various fields of knowledge associated with different aspects of a mentally healthy campus. This gives a sense of the professionals who might be usefully involved in developing a systemic and comprehensive strategy and avoids unconscious bias for one aspect or another of a mentally healthy campus.
