About the Post-Secondary Student Standard

What are we doing?

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), in collaboration with CSA Group (standards organization), is leading the development of a Standard on Psychological Health and Safety for Post-Secondary Students (PSS Standard) set to be released in 2020. Like the Standard developed for the workplace including faculty and staff, the PSS Standard will act as a voluntary process guideline to help Canada’s academic institutions promote and support students’ psychological health and safety, and support students’ success.
