Action Group - Mental Health and Wellness


On the 22nd of January, 2018, President Jacques Frémont announced the creation of an Action Group which will help the campus develop and implement an Action Plan on mental health and wellness at the University of Ottawa.

The Action Plan consists of four pillars:

  • Awareness: of the entire community
  • Mobilisation: to better coordinate initiatives across campus
  • Training: to better understand how to support oneself and others
  • Strengthening: our supports and services 

This is a collective effort from the entire university community, and representatives from unions and student associations have offered their support.
