Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health
Innovation and Opportunities in Campus Mental Health conference - Toronto

CICMH 2017 Conference

The Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health’s Annual Conference is the meeting place for stakeholders in post-secondary mental health across Ontario and Canada. This annual event attracts over 200 participants, 20 exhibitors, and leaders in mental health from across the country. It offers over a dozen workshops featuring the best, promising and emerging practices in the sector.

This year’s theme, Innovation & Opportunities in Campus Mental Health, will focus on how post-secondary institutions can assess the need for, design, implement and evaluate campus-wide mental health strategies. We are working toward having whole-campus strategies that emphasize the wellbeing of campus communities.

Toward a Strategy for Healthy Campuses: A Whole-Campus Approach

Creating a healthy campus community involves institutional policies, physical environment, counselling and crisis intervention, curriculum, training of faculty and staff, competency-building for students, and more. It requires a proactive, systemic approach. Creating a healthy campus community involves everyone – including faculty, support staff, administrators, student leaders, and students. It requires the campus community to be engaged in understanding and enacting the role they play in creating a healthy campus.

A whole-campus approach to building a culture of wellbeing is an approach that explores the impact of wellbeing on learning and personal growth that’s spreading quickly across institutions, both within Canada and internationally. To facilitate this discussion, we look at the key components for campus mental health strategy development, as established by the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).

These are:

Institutional Structure: Organization, Planning and Policy
Supportive, Inclusive Campus Climate and Environment
Mental Health Awareness
Community Capacity to Respond to Early Indications of Student Concern
Self-Management Competencies and Coping Skills
Accessible Mental Health Services
Crisis Management

Each of these components represents an individual stream under this year’s conference theme. We are especially interested in program submissions that integrate ideas under each of the seven streams into an overall campus mental health strategy, showcase innovation and research within the streams, and set the course for having a campus-wide strategy in place.
