The Student Mental Health Strategy Fund invites proposals from students, faculty, or staff for projects that foster a community of caring and promote campus mental health.
The University of Windsor invests $24,000 through the fund each year, with the next application deadline Feb. 1, 2020.
In the fall term, $12,900 was disbursed to student groups and departments to fund prevention and early intervention efforts, and enhance mental health services, including training for Student Counselling Centre staff, a wellness initiatives student employee position, a mental health summit for high school students, and an event to provide students with an opportunity to de-stress while learning about the biological component of mental health.
This funding to implement the Student Mental Health Strategy comes in addition to the recent launch of My Student Support Program (MySSP), which provides free counselling 24/7 to all students via call and text.
