As a university, we all have a role to play in the health and wellness of our students. After consultations with students, staff, faculty, parents, and community stakeholders, we were able to build off of the successes of our previous Framework’s to develop our latest approach to student mental health and wellness. The Carleton University Student Mental Health Framework (SMHF) 2022-2026 (PDF, 2.2 KB) outlines four areas of focus comprising 12 objectives and 30 recommendations. We look forward to continuing engagement from faculty, staff, students, and external community partners in the implementation of these recommendations.

For the purpose of the SMHF 2022-2026, we identified and developed recommendations for the following four areas:

  • Student Engagement
  • Building Skills and Strengthening Resilience
  • Coordinated Student Supports and Services
  • Campus Culture of Wellness
