Helping Ontario's colleges and universities enhance capacity to support student mental health and well-being

Campus Initiative

Purple Couch Campaign

The AC Purple Couch™ promotes mental health awareness amongst students, and presents valuable mental health resources to support students and foster success throughout their college experience.

The concept behind the couch: wherever you see the AC Purple Couch™, grab a seat, and speak your mind. Chat with the person beside you, trained student leaders, or mental health professionals. Just talk.

Have a seat on the AC Purple CouchTM and start the conversation!
