On-site Mental Health Support – Sault College’s Mental Health Hub

On-site Mental Health Support – Sault College’s Mental Health Hub

Tuesday June 9th, 2015 from 12:00 – 12:30 pm

Workshop Overview

Sault College’s Mental Health Hub project aims to provide on-campus supports for students experiencing mental health challenges.  The hub has been supported by the Mental Health Innovation Fund, and has been extended through the next two years in order to continue to provide and expand on these vital services, and to measure the success of the model. 

The hub model focuses on the provision of clinical services, internal/external partnerships, mental health education, stigma reduction, culturally diverse service options, non-clinical supports, institutional support, and fiscally responsible sustainability.  This workshop will describe the model, and will provide context and insights based on lessons learned in the set-up and first two years of operation.
