Through the Healthy Minds Healthy College Initiative, Red River College Polytechnic is working to be a supportive and healthy place to learn and work. Good mental health helps us live the life we want and contribute to a community, while reaching academic and career goals.

Sometimes it’s a struggle for students and staff to maintain good mental health, and when that happens there are supports and resources to assist you.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, with increased stress and a move to more remote learning, we’ve increased the supports and resources available to both students and staff.
