From Surviving To Thriving
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve supporting post-secondary institutions, their staff, faculty, and students. Since 2019, we've had the honour of working with post-secondary institutions across Canada to help them share valuable resources that support mental health and well-being. Whether you are a recipient of the Mindful Campuses grant or not, you can leverage the free Mindful Campuses Digital Toolbox to support the wellbeing of those within your organization.
