RyeAccess Mental Wellness Survey for Ryerson University students
RyeACCESS, the organization of students with disabilities at Ryerson University in Toronto, is conducting a Mental Wellness Survey for Ryerson University students. The group describes the survey research in this way: "RyeACCESS is trying to survey the campus for your experiences, your knowledge and your solutions to addressing mental wellness/mental health/mental wellbeing. You're the experts so let us know!"
The survey can be completed online here:
"RyeACCESS recognizes that students with disabilities have a diverse range of experiences both on and off campus. However, one experience that is consistent is that of disempowerment.
As students with disabilities it is our time to reclaim our bodies and minds, take control of the services we use, and work with our allies to achieve the freedom and autonomy we deserve. This freedom comes in multiple forms including: professors and staff working with us to find creative solutions; the ability to physically access every building, classroom and office on campus; knowing that when you are experiencing a crisis that people will be there to support you in the ways you need – rather than forcing treatment; full choice and self-direction of support services such as attendants, interpreters, and interveners; and much more.
RyeACCESS works to reclaim our bodies and minds through advocacy, campaigns, outreach, education, and events. We focus on both systemic and individual issues in an effort to create an equitable environment and promote the empowerment, autonomy and freedom of students with disabilities."
