Did you know 1 in 5 students will experience a mental illness or mood disorder this year? Only 20% of students who struggle with a mental illness will actually seek help for their mental illness. Stigma is cited as the largest barrier to students seeking help for their mental illness.
This October, KSA Campaigns is launching a more mindful U — a mental health campaign aimed at raising awareness and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness. We will also be lobbying the government for targeted funding for mental health services on campus.
Find us around all four campuses throughout the month to learn more about your mental health and well-being, and help us lobby for mental health funding by signing a letter to your MLA!
