York University’s Mental Health Steering committee oversees an initiative that aims to promote a healthy, inclusive and supportive environment that fosters mental health and well-being among members of the York community. The initiative was developed on the premise that wellness is a necessary pre-condition to learning and working, and that physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, mental, and cultural and environmental health and learning are interdependent. Through a variety of education, training and awareness events, York University’s Mental Health and Wellness committee strives to promote a more holistic, and integrated approach to campus health that supports academic excellence, employee satisfaction and productivity, as well as the overall success of all York community members.
