Translating complex mental health concerns which intersect with academic, social, economic and cultural nuances of a campus, into actions and outcomes is daunting. It is critical to synthesize them to inform policy, practice, assessment, intervention, outcome and evaluation. The second half this webinar presents a revised version of Assessment Inventory and Planning Guide: A Companion document to Post-Secondary Student Mental Health (PSSHM). The purpose of this resource is to provide a cohesive and tiered approach to mental health which integrates a myriad of contemporary perspectives from a global pandemic to racial disparities, from digital disruptions to social isolation. Consistent with the zeitgeist of our socio-cultural ethos, our aim is to maintain the initial framework of the systemic approach as well as recalibrate it so meeting contemporary needs of campuses.
