About the PSS Standard
This new voluntary Standard will build on existing mental health strategies, frameworks and promising practices to create a consistent evidence-informed approach to student mental health and to aid post- secondary institutions to support student mental health and wellness and encourage #studentsuccess. One of the key objectives of the Standard is that it reflects the diversity in Canada, and that it includes a variety of perspectives from a cross section of people and organizations.
Please note a limited number of seats are available. Participants will be confirmed using selection criteria that ensures a diverse representation of people and organizations with a specific substance use and addictions lens who have the interest and expertise in supporting post-secondary student mental health.
