Healthy Minds/Healthy Campuses Summit 2012, Victoria, September 26-29, 2012. Graham Lowe will participate in a panel discussion on “Diagnosing a Healthy Campus Community.”
Summit 2012 is a unique opportunity to design a shared vision for campus communities that support well-being and to identify methods to get there. Building upon four years of growth and learning, we plan to create a space to come together to learn about, share and advance strategic efforts to promote mental health and reduce risky substance use at post-secondary institutions.
Using a mix of creative techniques this event will facilitate knowledge exchange, collaborative thinking and innovation. Leading thinkers will help animate critical discussions related to policy, teaching, student services and campus life. Delegates will examine issues, sustainable solutions and actions to support health-promoting, vibrant campus communities that enable people to reach their full potential.
