We understand that everyone is busy and the transition to online learning has been difficult but one of the most important things is to take the time to invest in ourselves and acquire the tools to help us weather the storm.

Starting in January, the following will be offered:

The Inquiring Mind Mental Health Training – Virtual

The Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary (TIM PS) is an evidence-based program designed to address and promote mental health and reduce the stigma of mental illness in an educational / student setting.

Goals

The goals of the training are to:

  • reduce stigma and negative attitudes towards those struggling with poor mental health
  • help participants maintain mental health and improve resilience and coping strategies
  • teach participants about the Mental Health Continuum Model
  • foster a supportive campus community
  • support others

Objectives

The course’s objective is to give university students the practical knowledge of mental health and mental illness so they can:

  • Use the mental health continuum to recognize changes in their mental health and that of others
  • Be prepared to use skills to improve their coping and resiliency
  • Reduce both public and self-stigma
  • Be willing to be a part of a supportive campus environment
