Description:

With the rising number of university students grappling with stress and anxiety, as well as feeling unfocused and overwhelmed, supporting student mental health is becoming one of the top priorities of academic institutions. The University of Toronto has made a commitment to mental health and wellness that uses a broader systemic approach that requires participation at individual, departmental and institutional levels.” Libraries, responsive in nature and one of the busiest hubs on campus, are well situated to de-stigmatize mental health conversations by encouraging students to de-stress, re-focus, and build resiliency.
