Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation

Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation supports student-led mental health initiatives at students’ associations across the province. Created through a partnership between the Alberta Students’ Executive Council (ASEC) and the Government of Alberta, Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation is a three-year fund aimed at addressing the growing mental health needs of Alberta's post-secondary campuses.

Two years after it was first announced, the Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation (ACMHI) fund has facilitated the launch of hundreds of events and student-led mental health initiatives at 16 post-secondary institutions across Alberta. So far, ACMHI initiatives have reached nearly 140,000 students with support from institutions and community stakeholders. Students are taking ownership of mental health on campus to actively improve their fellow students’ mental health by hosting campus stigma reduction campaigns, and stress reduction events, among a series of new services and training opportunities.

ACMHI continues supporting student-led mental health initiatives at campuses across Alberta!

I really enjoyed being at the University of Lethbridge to announce our investment of $3.6 million this year to support much needed mental health programming, education and student outreach efforts at Alberta campuses.

I'm looking forward to working with our partners, including the Alberta Students' Executive Council [ASEC], on the future of this program beyond 2017.

[08/09/16]   Statement by the Alberta Students' Executive Council Chair Allannah Wrobel on Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation Grant

August 8th, 2016 – Edmonton, Alberta

Allannah Wrobel, Chair of the Alberta Students' Executive Council, made the following statement today regarding the Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation Grant:

“In 2013 the Alberta Students' Executive Council received $2 million in order to build mental health initiatives on campuses across Alberta. Since 2013 student-lead mental health initiatives have reached over 215,000 students at 17 post-secondary institutions across Alberta.

“Through the Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation Grant the Alberta Students' Executive Council has forged working relationships with nearly 1000 campus and community partners in order to provide mental health resources to students – over 800 campaigns and events, 60 services new to campuses, and training for hundreds of peer support students.

“These initiatives have facilitated the Alberta Students' Executive Council to work together with student leaders and address the challenges students face regarding mental health.

“We thank the Government of Alberta for their support of the Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation Grant and look forward to continuing to work together to provide solutions that bring crisis-intervention and mental health prevention and promotion to campus.”

Alberta Students' Executive Council [ASEC]

Today the Government of Alberta released the long awaited Mental Health Review. Within the review lies 32 important recommendations for improving how Alberta provides mental health services. The clear message throughout is that the status quo is not acceptable and that the Alberta Government will need to be a leader in transforming mental health services in Alberta. We urge the government to follow this review and its recommendations.

Today the Government of Alberta released the long awaited Mental Health Review. Within the review lies 32 important recommendations for improving how Alberta provides mental health services. The clear message throughout is that the status quo is not acceptable and that the Alberta Government will need to be a leader in transforming mental health services in Alberta. We urge the government to follow this review and its recommendations.

Of particular note to PSE students is recommendation #7: "Create healthy and supportive campus environments through health
promotion programming and enhancements to addiction and mental health campus services." Many post-secondary students are at risk of developing serious mental health problems and developing harmful additions, but with support and early intervention they can be helped. To do this effectively requires resources that many of our institutions are sorely lacking. ASEC has advocated for the importance of providing mental health services on campus for years, and it is encouraging to see it enshrined here so clearly.

Given that the prior Alberta Government commitment to funding mental health on campus is expiring this year, we urge the government to make good on this recommendation and fund mental health supports for post-secondary.
