Accessing Community Expertise

Campuses may not have the resources or expertise to fully support students with complex mental health and/or substance use needs.

This section provides information and tools that will help you identify and refer students with complex needs to appropriate services both on-campus and off-campus to successfully support their learning, mental health and well-being. Many community mental health and addiction agencies have their own intake and referral processes and waitlists,  so be sure to be informed of this when contacting these organizations.

As well, this section reviews privacy and confidentiality legislation; and includes sample forms and guidelines to consider when working with multiple service providers on-campus and off-campus to provide a coordinated circle of care for the student.
