As U of T’s largest academic home, the Faculty of Arts & Science plays an important role in creating working and learning environments that promote mental health and wellness for all members of our community. Through policies, practices, and initiatives, the Faculty of Arts & Science seeks to encourage positive mental health, promote help-seeking, and support students, staff, and faculty to find and maintain balance throughout their work and studies.
Minds Redefined is a collection of Arts & Science initiatives that promote mental health. Collectively, these initiatives encourage us to broaden our definition of excellence to include a commitment to individual and community wellbeing alongside our commitment to academic and research distinction.
The goals of these initiatives are to:
- Promote a culture of caring
- Increase mental health literacy
- Encourage practices that support wellbeing
- Challenge stigma and promote help-seeking
Minds Redefined initiatives are led by the A&S Mental Health Team and informed by the Mental Health Initiatives Advisory Committee.
