On March 7th and 8th 2019, campus stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff and senior administrators, from across British Columbia came together to mobilize collective action in pursuit of promoting mental health and well-being and healthier relationships with substances on campus. On March 9th, post-secondary students gathered to continue the dialogue and grow the student voice towards the provincial goals of Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses.
