Supporting Student Mental Health
This information is being provided to assist faculties and departments in appropriately dealing with emergent issues related to student mental health.
The accompanying guide provides information to assist in recognizing observable behaviours or indicators of concern, resources to support faculty and staff, safe disclosure principles, and advice on approaching difficult conversations with students.
The Resource Contact Information page provides phone numbers, websites and campus locations for various resources and service providers. These offices work collaboratively to ensure that not only is the student assisted, but the staff member is also supported in dealing with issues involving student mental health.
There may be situations where a student does not present specific risk factors, but your intuition tells you that something is wrong. In these cases it is important to provide the student with a referral to one of the campus services.
