Proposals invited for mental health and well-being training sessions

In collaboration with partners from across campus, Student Health, Counselling and Wellness Services is hosting Lancers Care Week from Jan. 23 to 27, 2023. Lancers Care Week provides a dedicated time during the academic year to bring members of our community together to share their talent, expertise, and skills in promoting campus mental health and holistic well-being. The week will include activities, booths, a student services fair, training sessions, and skill-building workshops.

Organizers are currently accepting proposals from members of the campus community who are interested in delivering a scheduled training session or workshop during the week. Content should be rooted in best practices or current research and be delivered by someone with subject matter knowledge or expertise.

“We know that our campus has many experts in diverse topics relating to holistic mental health and well-being, and we would like to offer the opportunity for those interested to deliver a training session or workshop in their area of knowledge,” says Katie Chauvin, mental health and wellness co-ordinator.

In keeping with the objectives of Lancers Care Week, proposed training sessions should align with one or more of the following topics:

  • Holistic wellness (physical, spiritual, emotional, career, etc.)
  • Mental health awareness and education
  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • Wellness skill building
  • Coping strategy development
  • Safety information and skills
  • Accessibility information and skills
  • Stigma reduction
  • Resource promotion
  • Campus care

Upon submitting your proposal, you will be asked to select your preferences for dates and times, and to provide a brief description of what your training will be about. Lancers Care Week organizers will co-ordinate the logistics — room booking, scheduling, registration, promotion, etc. — and will work with trainers to finalize details.

To submit a training proposal, access the submission form here. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Dec 14.
