Campus mental health initiative receives $4M in federal funding


The Public Health Agency of Canada is providing $4M in funding to the Mindful Campus Initiative to support the creation of mental health promotion materials linked to a peer support network, mindfulness training, and practice programming. The initiative supports students who are emerging creative artists and designers by helping them to develop their coping and resilience skills and by creating a supportive environment. The collaborative initiative is being delivered by OCAD University in partnership with Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts; NSCAD University; Seneca College’s School of Creative Arts and Animation; and York University’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design.
