We support student-led collectives that seek to advocate and promote mentally healthy post-secondary communities in Alberta. The efforts of these groups foster flourishing campuses across our province.
ASEC/ACMHI: A United Voice
Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation fund (ACMHI) was made possible through the dedication of the Alberta Students' Executive Council (ASEC). ASEC is a member-driven, non-partisan advocacy organization that unites over 105,000 student voices to policy makers. Our diverse membership generates and provides innovative solutions to students’ needs.
Overwhelmingly, student leaders indicated that on-campus mental health and wellness services are a top priority.
Alberta Health announced that ASEC would receive $1.5 million to support projects, programs and campaigns that close gaps in mental health supports for students across Alberta.
ASEC received an additional $500,000 to support a Student-Led Wellness Summit, expand ACMHI initiatives, and launch a provincial Community of Practice for post-secondary mental health and wellness.
Post-secondary education is a right that every Albertan should have access to, and advocacy for students will ensure that decision.
Give post-secondary education students a voice regardless of where they are educated in Alberta.
