Supporting Student Mental Health
Partnering with St. Lawrence College
Queen’s and St. Lawrence College received $1 million over three years from the provincial Mental Health Innovation Fund to develop standards that will help students with mental health disabilities access academic accommodations faster and more easily.
The initiative is being co-led by Mike Condra, Assistant Professor in Queen’s Department of Psychology and Director of Health, Counselling and Disability Services and Wanda Williams, Director of Students Services, St. Lawrence College.
Queen’s also received $426,000 from the provincial government to develop a new peer mentoring program focused on supporting students with mental health concerns that can also be implemented at post-secondary institutions across Ontario.
