Summit Overview

Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses looks forward to holding our next biennial Summit in the week of Feb. 27, 2023 (with specific days still to be finalized). This will be a virtual summit, though some participants may wish to view it or parts of it together from a shared location.
In keeping with (a) our mission to promote mental wellness and healthier relationships with substances on our BC post-secondary campuses and (b) a major goal in our HM|HC 2020-2023 Strategic Plan, the theme for this coming Summit will be around “Activating the Okanagan Charter in different areas of campus community”.

Our intent and desired impact for the Summit, in encouraging activation of the Okanagan Charter, is to further

  • build capacity in our learning community for better management of collective and personal mental well-being and healthier relationships with substances in our campus contexts, and so
  • support both enhanced shared literacy (knowledge & skills) around this health promotion pursuit and stronger connections among our members toward increased intra- and inter-campus collaboration.


Call for Proposals

Besides occasion to hear and respond to engaging plenary keynote speakers, we expect at this Summit to have opportunities for interaction among participants in other components which will take the form of:

a) 1.5 hr. dialogic workshops related to the Summit theme

b) short 15 min. presentations relevant to enhancing campus members’ individual and shared well-being (sessions will invite response including Q&A following each set of presentations)
We invite proposals for such parts of the program, with a deadline of December 16 for submissions. Please click here to submit your proposal.


Our Summit cannot be made possible without the dedicated CoP members who participate and share with others.


Registration for the Summit is projected to open in January 2023.
