SMU Healthy Minds Team/ MENtality
The Saint Mary’s Healthy Minds Team is a group of student volunteers committed to raising awareness for mental health issues and promoting wellbeing on and off campus.
By working with The Counselling Centre, and overseen by Brandon Yeo, the Healthy Minds Team engages in student outreach, facilitates events to promote psychological wellness and educates peers on issues surrounding mental health. The goal of the team is to ensure that the Saint Mary’s community is sensitive towards the issues surrounding psychological wellness and are aware of the resources available to students who may be dealing with mental health issues.
By fostering a sense of community and acceptance on campus, the Healthy Minds Team aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and create an environment where conversations about mental wellbeing are open and welcomed.
MENtality is a subsidary of the Healthy Minds Team. This group of students work to raise awareness around toxic masculinity and expectations of male/male identifying students, as well as destimitize help seeking behaviours amoung the student population.
All of the team’s volunteers are dedicated to the core ideals of the mission. They are passionate and educated student leaders who want to enact meaningful change to help their school community.
