Our Mandates

Raise awareness about mental health and mental illness through our events (e.g. Speaker Series, special lectures, symposiums) to create an environment where individuals can freely communicate about their questions about mental health and mental well-being.

Eliminate stigma towards mental illness by disseminating information through our events and communications, and helping individuals understand mental illness is non-discriminatory in who it affects.

Provide connections to mental health resources and establish an inclusive, understanding campus environment to help students achieve optimal mental wellness.

Encourage interdisciplinary and interprofessional participation by interacting with students and faculty in health science disciplines and non-health science disciplines through the promotion of our events.

Offer professional and volunteer opportunities within UBC MHAC and external organizations to allow students to gain knowledge on relevant mental health topics.
