Supporting Mental Health and Well-Being for Post Secondary Institutions

What is this STANDARD?
  • It’s a set of voluntary, flexible guidelines to help Canada’s post-secondary institutions promote and support the mental health, well-being, and success of their students.
  • The CSA Group Technical Committee, made up of diverse experts and stakeholders in the field, are responsible for developing the Standard’s content.

These VOLUNTARY GUIDELINES will help students, institutions, service providers, staff, faculty, and other key partners work more collaboratively to:

  1. raise awareness and decrease stigma around mental health
  2. increase access to student supports, on and off campus promote healthy life and resiliency skills students can use at school, work, and in daily life
  3. provide healthier and safer institutional environments
  4. improve opportunities for student success
