Conference Description and Background 

The Collaborations for Change Conference brings together difference makers from across Canada to collaborate on advancing knowledge, practice, and research in post-secondary student mental health.  

This virtual Conference aims to build on the strong foundations in post-secondary mental health set by the Okanagan Charter, National Standard for Mental Health and Well-being for Post-Secondary Students, and the recently released Best Practice Guide from Best Practices Network in Canadian Higher Education (BP-Net). 

The inaugural 2021 Conference attracted over 360 participants from 124 institutions and organizations, including students, staff, clinicians, faculty, and partners and stakeholders in government, health care, and community organizations, for an exciting two days of learning and sharing together.
