We heard the call for change’: Task force on student mental health issues report and recommendations – U of T News

After months of consultations with students, faculty and staff, an independent task force on student mental health at the University of Toronto is calling for major changes to mental health services across the university’s three campuses.

Led by Professor Trevor Young, the Presidential and Provostial Task Force on Student Mental Health’s final report calls for a student-centric approach to timelier and harmonized mental health services to make it easier for students to get help where and when they need it.

The report also urges the university to expand community partnerships with hospitals and others in the mental health sector, such as the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), to better respond to the growing pressure on mental health resources.

In the university’s response, the administration described the task force’s work as “comprehensive and thoughtful” and said all 21 of its recommendations will be acted upon.
