In partnership with the University of Calgary and the Mental Health Commission of Canada, the Student Success Centre is offering a new mental health training program for students on campus! The Inquiring Mind is a training program that was created with the input of students as well as faculty and staff with mental health-related expertise. 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.
After the workshop, students will receive a certificate of completion. There is a limited number of spots available in the workshop, so students should sign up as soon as possible! More information on the program is available on the Student Success Centre website.
