Mental Health

SA Mental Health InitiativeMHI_logo_1_large.png

Student life can be stressful at times. Many students face constraints of limited budgets, pressures of work-school-life balance, the weight of nagging deadlines, and looming exams. Coupled with anxiety, loneliness, and other issues, your student experience can become a difficult one.

In recognition of these pressures, the Students’ Association of Red Deer College introduced its Mental Health Initiative aimed at promoting a positive atmosphere in which mental health can be explored and solutions can be enhanced.

Through its Mental Health Initiative, the SA hosts mental health awareness events each term. The events are designed to give students a break and to help encourage discussion of mental health.
