Supporting Students in Distress
A Guide to Supporting Students in Distress was prepared on behalf of OCAD University as a part of a campus wide Mental Health Initiative. This guide is the result of a campus wide effort to promote mental health and well-being at OCAD University under the leadership of the OCAD University Mental Health Steering Committee. In the spirit of a human-centred and participatory design process, this guide has been reviewed and informed by multiple perspectives and stakeholder groups at OCAD U including students, alumni, staff, and faculty members. A guide to supporting students in Distress was created into a Supporting Students in Distress training.
