No more months-long waitlists.
No more unnecessary handcuffs.
No more stigma, isolation, and preventable losses.
Students are more than capable of assessing our own needs and the interventions that can be used to meet them. That’s why, on March 14th, members of post-secondary communities from across Ontario are gathering at a mental health summit organized by students, for students.
At a time when meteoric increases in mental illness, isolation, and inadequate services are impacting every single one of our campuses and our lives, we need space — specifically, connective spaces. We need diverse experts to be able to share insights into today’s micro-level “student experience” and province-wide challenges; to build relationships and co-create calls to action that enrich all our communities.
