Human Resources and Student Affairs are excited to announce the Success Through Wellness Grants (STWG). These grants of up to $10,000 were created to fund projects that:

  • engage the campus community to foster positive mental health and wellbeing, and
  • create a supportive campus environment through new initiatives or enhancements to existing supports with a proven track record. 

Success Through Wellness, the Campus Mental Health Strategy, was launched in February 2014, and is the guiding document for the enhancement of the campus community to promote and support mental health and well-being at the University of Manitoba. Its broad scope encompasses all members of the campus community including students, staff and faculty, and it seeks to address all areas of wellness. It includes 67 recommendations that fall under 6 goal areas, the focus of which is to strive to be a community that is committed, caring, healthy, responsive, supportive and resourceful.

Successful proposals should be clearly aligned with one or more of the six goals articulated in Success Through Wellness, which represents a call to action for all members of the University to help create:

  • A committed community that values a comprehensive and sustainable approach to campus mental health
  • A caring community that promotes positive mental health and strives to prevent mental health problems
  • A healthy community that builds awareness of mental health and its relationship with academic and workplace success
  • A responsive community that helps all members to respond to early warning signs of mental health problems and seek additional supports
  • A supportive community that provides accessible, effective, and integrated mental health services
  • A resourceful community that builds awareness of the signs of mental health crisis and the appropriate responses and resources
