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.

Both in-person and virtual sessions will be announced in September!
