It takes a whole campus . . . Promoting mental health for students, faculty and staff

{C}{C}{C}Twenty five years ago, the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion launched the 'settings approach' to health promotion. The promotion of physical and mental health takes place in the settings where we live, learn, work and play—and we do all four at universities and colleges. In this presentation, I will discuss the principles of health promotion in general, and the evidence-base for mental health promotion and the prevention of mental disorders. From this basis, I will suggest what it will take to make our campuses mentally healthy settings for students, staff and faculty."

{C}{C}{C}

This interactive workshop will provide you with a basic understanding of the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and its implications for people living with mental illness or mental health issues.  You will have the opportunity to bring a human rights lens to what you do--whether that is studying, living your life with a mental health diagnosis, counselling, providing student services, offering peer support or advocating for mental health.  We will work together to identify new ways to bring a rights analysis and corresponding actions to what you do on a daily basis.

Open Space Technology will be used as a meeting methodology on Saturday, November 19. This method of convening and working creates space for delegates to identify their own campus mental health and substance use questions and recruit support to generate collaborative responses. You can see the results of our Open Space activities from our 2010 Healthy Minds Healthy Campuses Summit or visit Chris Corrigan's website to learn more about Open Space Technology
