As a university, we all have a role to play in the health and well-being of our students. The Carleton University Student Mental Health Framework 2.0 pdf is an important addition to Carleton University’s efforts to promote positive mental health and assist students in realizing their potential. Not only does it build on the previous Framework’s consistent and integrated approach to recognizing, responding, referring and reporting a student in distress, it now offers a holistic, campus-wide approach to mental health and well-being. The Student Mental Health Framework 2.0 has been developed by the Student Mental Health Advisory Committee, a university-based cross-functional team.
For the purpose of the Framework 2.0, we identified and developed recommendations for the following six areas of focus:
- Student Engagement
- Well-Being, Skills Building, and Resilience
- Mental Health Awareness, Literacy and Education
- Accessible Service
- Coordinated Crisis Management
- Institutional Structure
You can view the Student Mental Health Framework 2.0 pdf for more information on the six areas of focus and the recommendations.
