A Standard for post-secondary mental health – One year later

The CSA Z2003:20 National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students (the Standard) — the first of its kind in the world — is a set of flexible, voluntary guidelines to help post-secondary institutions support the mental health and well-being of their students.

Since the Standard was released in October 2020, campuses across the country have started their implementation journey. While each journey looks different, there are many successes to celebrate during this year of rapid change.
