About the Committee

The Graduate Student Mental Health Committee represents the interests and concerns of the graduate student population at the University of Toronto.

Our main objectives currently include the following:

  • Create an organized dialogue between students and administration about graduate student health, wellbeing and counseling needs
  • Provide consultation and advice regarding mental health programming and service
  • Advise the Union regarding insurance and budget issues that are impacted by student mental health
  • Identify educational/informational needs and emerging issues of students regarding mental health
  • Identify and address barriers related to seeking care and provide user feedback around accessibility and ease of use
  • Organize and participate in campus-wide events related to mental health
  • Promote mental health awareness and wellbeing for graduate students through awareness and anti-stigma campaigns
  • Serve as a resource for graduate students seeking mental health care on campus or in the community through providing resources for self-referrals
