Principal’s Commission on Mental Health

In November 2012, the Principal’s Commission on Mental Health submitted a report to Principal Daniel Woolf and the Queen’s community. The report was the result of a year-long process that was based on comprehensive input from students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, mental health professionals and community members who generously gave their time to share their knowledge, experience, insight and ideas.

The university continues to enact change based on the report’s 116 recommendations, framed within a four-level pyramidal framework for a mental health strategy for Queen’s:

  • promoting a healthy community.
  • easing transitions and fostering resilience.
  • encouraging help-seeking and helping behaviour.
  • providing effective response, service and care.
