Government Announces Funding For Mental Health Training In The Post-Secondary Sector

Released on May 29, 2019

The Ministry of Advanced Education will provide $75,000 to support mental health training in the post-secondary sector.

Public post-secondary institutions gathered for this announcement at the first ever Post-Secondary Mental Health and Wellbeing Symposium today in Regina.  This funding will allow eligible institutions to further develop their capacity to support mental health and wellbeing at their institutions.

“Mental health is a priority for the Government of Saskatchewan,” Advanced Education Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “This initiative in the Ministry of Advanced Education acknowledges that mental health challenges affect our post-secondary sectors and that everyone, governments, institutions, communities and individuals, has a role to play in encouraging mental wellness for all.”

Through this investment, public post-secondary institutions in Saskatchewan will be eligible to receive funding to build staff capacity to understand, support and improve mental health and wellbeing on their campuses.  Post-secondary institution employees will receive trainer certification to deliver the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and The Inquiring Mind (TIM) courses to students, faculty and staff.

MHFA provides individuals with the skills to interact with and help others experiencing a mental health problem or crisis, while TIM is a self-focused program that addresses the topics of stigma reduction and resiliency skills.
