5.0 Evaluation Projects

In April 2018, CICMH launched the Evaluation Capacity Project with the goal of building the evaluation capacity of front-line staff and student leaders in the post-secondary sector in Ontario. Each project site was linked with an evaluation champion to help them on their individual projects.

Carleton University

In 2016, Carleton updated the Student Mental Health Framework to address the needs and changing climate to a more holistic, inclusive, whole campus plan. The document was used as guiding values for the work being done across departments, student services, and student groups.

The purpose of this new plan is to:

  • Reinforce and strengthen the University’s existing framework to incorporate guiding values from the updated University Strategic Integrated Plan (2020).
  • Identify any gaps and/or new topics of importance and incorporate into the existing areas of the Student Mental Health Framework 2.0.
  • Present and share highlights of what has been accomplished in recent years.
  • Provide a guide and tiered University level evaluation framework for mental health programs, initiatives, and services.
