The Inquiring Mind

Supporting ourselves and each other 

Student Health & Wellness is excited to bring The Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary program back to Dalhousie University. This workshop is currently available for students only.

What is The Inquiring Mind Post Secondary?

It is delivered in a 4-hour workshop format and covers three main components: stigma reduction, resiliency skills, and the Mental Health Continuum Model.

The program also teaches about creating a supportive campus and how to support others who may be experiencing poor mental health. The program is designed to be interactive with activities and group discussions, as well as a set of scenarios for participants to work through.
