Reimagining Our Approach to Post-Secondary Student Mental Health by
Dr. Kristin Cleverley
Associate Professor, Lawrence S Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing and Department of Psychiatry, Temerty Faculty of Medicine

Mental health is the bedrock for strong academic outcomes and an essential determinant of overall lifetime well-being. Yet mental health concerns and psychological distress among post-secondary students is increasing and demand for services is steeply rising. In response to this, UofT is transforming its approach to student mental health and well-being – informed by research evidence. Through the Inlight Student Mental Health Research Initiative, UofT is poised to make substantial gains in a mental wellness approach. Professor Cleverley will discuss how Inlight is leveraging U of T’s research expertise to drive innovation through research that will benefit not only our community, but students across Canada and the globe.
