A graphic recording from Summit Keynote Address: It takes a whole campus … Promoting mental health for students, faculty and staff by Trevor Hancock at Summit 2011. Twenty-five years ago, the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion launched the ‘settings approach’ to health promotion. The promotion of physical and mental health takes place in the settings where we live, learn, work and play—and we do all four at universities and colleges. In this presentation, Trevor discussed the principles of health promotion in general, and the evidence base for mental health promotion and the prevention of mental disorders. From this basis, he suggested what it will take to make our campuses mentally healthy settings for students, staff and faculty.
