Mental health efforts backed by Jack.org
Mental health is a topic gaining traction on campuses across Canada, and a big reason for that change is Jack.org. Student-led, student-organized and student-driven, Jack.org is a group that’s dedicated to opening up the conversation about mental health and is encouraging young people to practice good self-care and to look out for their peers. Present on Queen’s campus for four years as the Jack Project, the organization rebranded this August as Jack.org to better reflect its current work. Now a national organization with chapters on campuses across Canada, Jack.org continues to promote student mental health initiatives. To help new ideas and programs about mental health take off, Jack.org has partnered with the Queen’s Student Initiative Fund (QSIF). The fund offers financial support to students who want to create programming to improve mental health on campus and in the Kingston community.
