This includes improved and increased mental health and well-being education, a unified approach to caring for those in difficulty, adapting accommodation practices, increasing our mental health care capacity and establishing a program of research and health policy focused on mental well-being. This approach will help McMaster achieve our commitment to creating an inclusive, supportive and healthy university community.
