Earlier this week, Brock University received a $25,000 grant from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to support an online mental health training module for students at the University.
The online module will help to educate students about mental health issues, how to identify and address the early signs, and what services are available. The initiative will also help to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues by engaging students and highlighting peer experiences.
The Brock initiative was developed in partnership with community services and agencies and will be available to residence dons, student health peers, teaching assistants and other student leaders.
