Types of Campus-Community Partnerships

Campuses can leverage support and expertise of community agencies to augment and/or complement campus programs, services and supports. Examples of partnership activities can range from short- term training supports to more extensive program development and service delivery. For instance:

  • Training for students as part of academic programming
  • Training and/or supports for student leadership
  • Promotion and awareness of community programs and services
  • Training for campus staff and administration to support student mental wellness
  • Training and/or supports for athletic teams
  • Peer support training or development of programs (e.g. Mental Health First Aid) for students (student council, residence dons, etc.)
  • Establish a campus/agency referral process
  • Integrated planning sessions to address student mental health needs
  • Consultation around specific issues (e.g. suicides, eating disorders)
  • On-campus clinics during peak stress times (e.g. orientation and exams) or year round
  • Integrated services support (e.g. embedded staff on campus)
  • Crisis support advice
  • Mobile clinics
  • Clinics/counselling off-campus
