Mental Health and Wellness

The Public Health Agency of Canada describes Positive Mental Health as "the capacity of each and all of us to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and deal with the challenges we face."

Positive Mental Health does not simply mean the absence of mental illness, just as there is more to health than the absence of physical illness. Mental health is a component of overall health and wellness, and is shaped by the many variables in our lives. Experiencing positive mental health can help you to deal with life’s challenges and experience life to the fullest! 

Supporting your mental health is important to St. Thomas University. Please browse the website to discover supports, events, workshops, programs and resources that are designed to enhance your mental health and overall well-being thorughout the academic year.
