Mental Health 101 is a resource for the post-secondary community in Nova Scotia to better recognize and respond to students in distress. Mental Health 101 originates from the Stay Connected Mental Health Project, a practice and culture-shifting collaboration among five Halifax universities, and Nova Scotia Health and the IWK, to support emerging adults with mental health needs.
The project was generously funded by Fred and Elizabeth Fountain in memory of their son, Alex. Mental Health 101 is a series of self-guided videos for faculty and staff to learn more about mental health and how to engage with students when there is a concern about their mental health and wellbeing. Students could use the resource as well in a peer support role. Each video is only a few minutes long and can be viewed at any time.
