Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses (HM|HC) is a province-wide community of practice, learning and working together to promote mental wellness and healthier relationships with substances within BC post-secondary institutions. This campus-based initiative engages students, service staff, faculty and administrators in a collaborative and innovative endeavor to build capacity and sustained mechanisms to advance well-being. HM|HC attempts to draw on sound theory and broad research as well as local experience and insight to enhance campus culture and shape environments conducive to all members thriving. Equipping them individually and collectively to contribute to the wellness of communities they now and will belong to is a vital part of the post-secondary educational mandate to develop productive citizens and leaders. HM|HC endorses and promotes implementation of the Okanagan Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges. Canadian Mental Health Association BC Division and Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research together provide a Support Team for this community of practice.
