It is easy to silo away postsecondary education within the confines of our provincial borders. Our hope with this project is to shed light on an issue with which all students regardless of jurisdiction have to deal. The mental health of students is a unifying theme and priority for student organizations such as ours’ across the country.
Among the limited successes and continued challenges this project highlights, we hope that the variance of measures to address this growing student issue across provincial lines can serve as inspiration for future innovative responses to access problems. Shared Perspectives is the first time that all five organizations have formally collaborated, representing almost 300,000 postsecondary student voices through this publication.
