Equity on campus: Creating policies and practices to support mental health
Diversity is one of Ontario’s greatest strengths and reflected strongly among the student population in postsecondary campuses. While campus environments benefit greatly, understanding the student experience and how their unique identities are supported helps in enhancing their campus experience. This webinar will present on the relationship between equity and mental health, highlighting the social determinants of health that most impact mental health. Participants will develop a stronger understanding of the interconnectedness of these factors, as well as support in developing policies to create greater equity in campus environments.
