The Skule Mental Wellness (Previously known as Skule Mental Health and Wellness) directorship aims to raise mental wellness awareness within the Skule community by connecting students with services offered by the University, Faculty, Engineering Society, and external resources. The directorship also aims to improve mental wellness at the Skule community by providing stress relieving activities and encouraging discussion about good mental wellness habits.

History[edit | edit source]

The Mental Health and Wellness directorship was created in October of the 2015-2016 school year. In late 2018, the name of the directorship was adjusted to better describe the scope of what the directorship was doing.

Handbook[edit | edit source]

Directors of Skule™ Mental Wellness are tasked with maintaining the Skule™ Mental Wellness Handbook, which can be found in the EngSoc office, First Year Office, most discipline common rooms, and other areas in which counseling can be provided. The Directorship also offers handbooks for free at events.

The first edition of the Mental Wellness Handbook was published in 2016, with another edition printed during F!Week 2019.
