Why did we create a toolkit?
The challenge: How can campus-based service providers best support students who present with complex mental health and/or addiction concerns?
This toolkit is designed to help Ontario’s campus-based service providers enhance capacity to support students with complex mental health needs through the creation of campus-community partnerships and circles of care. This toolkit includes promising practices, resources, forms and templates that will help you develop partnerships and agreements with community-based services, link students to these services and facilitate coordinated care both on-campus and off-campus to effectively support students’ mental health, wellness and learning. Campus-community partnerships and coordinated care are essential to supporting students with complex needs; and using a systemic approach is vital to successfully enhancing both student and campus mental health and wellness.
