Case Studies

Through personal stories, these case studies illustrate various pathways to care for students and some of the processes that postsecondary service providers have followed to build on-and-off-campus partnerships, agreements and referrals. The aim of these case studies is to illustrate real-life examples of promising practices for supporting students with complex needs.

We also hope that they help stimulate creative ideas and allow for reflection on ways your campus can adopt some of these practices within your context. As much as possible, these case studies illustrate ways the different service models (i.e. case management, triage etc.) play out in practice. In addition, some of the case studies have also tried to exemplify specific challenges such as transitions, effective supports for Aboriginal  and International students, and early psychosis intervention.
