The Inquiring Mind Mental Health Program

The Student Success Centre is offering a new mental health awareness program for students on campus this semester.

The Inquiring Mind was created with the input of students as well as faculty and staff with mental health-related expertise. It is geared towards both undergraduate and graduate students and is peer-facilitated. The program is delivered in a four-hour workshop format and covers three main components: stigma reduction, resiliency skills, and the Mental Health Continuum Model. Beyond these main components, the program also teaches about creating a supportive campus and how to support others who may be experiencing poor mental health. The Inquiring Mind is designed to be interactive with activities and group discussions, as well as a set of scenarios for participants to work through. The Inquiring Mind takes these very good basic skills and packages them in a way that is relevant to students. The curriculum includes custom videos featuring students, providing examples to which they can relate (e.g. mid-term stress, relationship challenges, being away from home/family supports).

Since this program is currently in its pilot stage, participants are expected to fill out program evaluations. After the workshop, students will receive a certificate of completion. There is a limited number of spots available in the workshop, so please encourage students to sign up as soon as possible. More information on the program is available in the attachments of this email and on the Student Success Centre website.
