This evidence-based program will address and promote mental health and reduce the stigma of mental illness in an educational setting. It will cover three main components: stigma reduction, resiliency skills, and the Mental Health Continuum Model. The Mental Health Continuum Model redefines how one thinks and talks about mental health by categorizing signs and indicators of good to poor mental health under a four-colour continuum: green (healthy), yellow (reacting), orange (injured), and red (ill).

Session Goals:

  • reduce stigma and negative attitudes towards those struggling with poor mental health
  • help participants maintain mental health and improve resilience and coping strategies
  • teach participants about the Mental Health Continuum Model
  • foster a supportive campus community 
  • support others
