Success Through Wellness

Our mental health strategy

UM's Campus Mental Health Strategy, Success Through Wellness, is a call to action for all of us as students, staff and faculty within the UM community.

The strategy focuses on the promotion and support of mental health as a collective responsibility. It examines all aspects of the university, and identifies ways we can be a community that is committed, caring, healthy, responsive, supportive and resourceful.

Supporting mental health and well-being reaps tremendous rewards, including a more positive work and learning environment, enhanced student experience, and increased staff and faculty satisfaction and engagement.

Success Through Wellness is the result of cross-campus consultation with student focus groups, staff and faculty surveys, and input from the Mental Health Strategy Advisory Committee. Read the strategy, and discover current and recommended initiatives that support positive mental health at UM.
