What is The Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary?

The Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary is a course that provides post-secondary students with practical knowledge of mental health and mental illness to allow them to:

  • Learn about the Mental Health Continuum and how to use it to recognize changes in your mental health and that of others
  • Use skills to improve your coping and resiliency
  • Reduce both public and self-stigma
  • Be willing to be a part of a supportive campus environment

It is delivered in a 4.5-hour course format (divided into 2, 2 hour and 15 minute sessions). The program is designed to be interactive with activities and group discussions, and a set of scenarios for participants to work through.

This workshop is currently available for students only.
