SUMMIT 2017: Given the strong focus on mental health and addiction care in BC Budget 2017, this plenary session sought feedback from Summit participants on systems-level investment. Of the $140 million allocated for targeted investment in services and supports in BC schools, homes, and communities, the Ministry of Advanced Education has dedicated $4.5 million to post-secondary mental health.

How can an annual investment of $1.5 million over the next three years be used to create and sustain mentally healthy campus communities?

Participants had no shortage of ideas, suggesting stepped care, applying a well-being lens to policies and planning, training, inclusive measures, and more.
