National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students
Of the more than 2 million people enrolled in Canadian post-secondary institutions, almost 70% are 24 or under, a demographic particularly susceptible to developing mental health issues.
Championed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, the new National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students is the first framework of its kind in the world, created to guide policies, procedures, and practices that promote positive student mental health and well-being.
National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace
According to the Mental Health Commission, on any given week, more than 500,000 Canadians are unable to go to work due to mental health problems.
It is for this reason that we encourage you to create a working environment that supports the overall mental well-being of your employees. The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard) – the first of its kind in the world, is a set of voluntary guidelines, tools and resources intended to guide organizations in promoting mental health and preventing psychological harm at work.
