Virtual Student Mental Health 101

  • Available to current York University students.
  • This session is led by a Peer Health Educator.
  • 1.5 hours online sessions

V MH 101 aims to provide students with the skills needed to recognize, respond and refer other peers with mental health concerns. The learning objectives of this session include:

  • Helping participants gain a better understanding of the type of mental health concerns that York University students face.
  • We will review statistics unique to our York student population to allow participants to better understand, normalize and empathize with complex lived experiences.
  • Creating safer online spaces for fellow classmates, colleagues and/or friends to disclose mental health concerns.  
  • Recognizing the unique ways to respond to potential distress or crisis in an online environment.
  •  Being able to recognize, respond, and refer students experiencing mental health issues and/or distress to appropriate campus resources. 
  • Providing opportunities to practice the skills needed to support students experiencing mental health issues and/or distress. 
  • Increasing understanding of the importance of your own self-care, well-being and the necessity for healthy boundaries to be an effective peer helper.
