Help Shape a National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety for Post-Secondary Students

April 9, 2019

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), in collaboration with CSA Group (standards organization), is developing a Standard on Psychological Health and Safety for Post-Secondary Students (PSS Standard).

Like the Standard developed for the workplace, the PSS Standard will act as a voluntary process guideline to help Canada’s academic institutions promote and support students’ psychological health and safety, and support students’ success.

You can influence the development of this standard in two ways:

1. Attend a Dialogue. All feedback gathered during these facilitated discussions will be forwarded to the technical committee who writes the Standard.  Choose one of the dates below and RSVP to Breanna.

Dialogues will be held in room A137 of Notre Dame Campus on Tuesday, April 16 from 9-11 am and Thursday April 18 from 2-4 pm. Refreshments will be served.

All staff and students are welcome. During small group discussions, students will be grouped with other students and staff will be grouped with other staff to enhance comfort and facilitate open and honest sharing.

2. Complete this survey; it’s anonymous and no personal identifying information will be gathered.

The Healthy Minds Healthy College Initiative is pleased that RRC can support this important work. Be sure to have your say.
