Dr. Ting Hu, Samad Shabestari, and Rachel Theriault were recognized as Champions of Mental Health at Queen’s for creating supportive learning and campus environments. The Champions for Mental Health program is a student-led initiative, responding to both student feedback and clear research calling for increased mental health promotion in academic and other campus environments. The initiative was developed in 2021 in alignment with the Queen’s Campus Wellbeing Framework.
This year, students across Queen’s have nominated more than 60 faculty and staff members for going the extra mile to support students in their emotional wellbeing, and showing compassion and encouragement in more areas of campus life than just academic work.
Full nomination profiles of QSC Mental Health Champions are posted on the Campus Wellness website:
