JACK.ORG CONCORDIA Concordia is where student leaders get to work on the ground. They want to create a sustained, year-round noise for mental health in our university. They hope to engage everyone in the conversation on mental health through loud, positive, and fun initiatives.

Their initiatives aim to promote the following amongst students at Concordia:

  1. A belief that mental health is relevant to them; that they’re part of the 5 in 5 
  2. An increase in comfort/willingness to talk about mental health   
  3. An understanding of the importance in caring for themselves, and the knowledge of how   
  4. An understanding of the importance in caring for their peers, and the knowledge of how   
  5. An awareness of campus/school/community mental health resources.

1 in 5 Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime.  As well, 5 in 5 of us have mental health and we all need to care for it.
