The materials on this site are the result of a project carried out by researchers from St. Lawrence College and Queen’s University. Funding for the project was provided by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities under the Mental Health Innovation Fund. The project had three goals:
To develop province-wide standards and guidelines for the kinds of documentation that post-secondary students must provide when they are seeking academic accommodations for a mental health condition. These standards and guidelines are described in the RECOMMENDATIONS. The Recommendations for Documentation Standards and Guidelines are based on extensive research, consultations and a review of the literature.
To develop training for students, faculty, access/disability advisors, student leaders and administrators, on how best to accommodate post-secondary students with mental health disabilities. The project team has produced eight videos dealing with various topics related to the accommodation process. Click HERE to access the videos.
To develop an information and resource handbook for students with mental health disabilities in postsecondary education. The handbook contains information on the accommodation process, rights and responsibilities, how to manage your mental health on campus and mental health and the law. View the Handbook.
