Funding body

BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services, a program of the Provincial Health Services Authority

Description

Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses is a province-wide community-of-practice promoting campus mental health supported by BC Partners for Mental Health and Substance Use Information. The project, which began in 2005, is based on the notion that success in a post-secondary institution, as in any setting, requires attending to the collective well-being of the campus itself as well as the well-being of individuals. It also embraces the notion that health promotion involves building the capacity of individuals and communities to take increased control of their own health and well-being. The project is directed by a Leadership Committee made up of campus representatives assisted by a Support team from CISUR and the Canadian Mental Health Association (BC Division).
