Governance

Two committees build upon the expertise and work of defunct committees that addressed similar concerns (President's Advisory Committee on Mental Health and Wellness, the Action Group on Mental Health (CAG) and Wellness and the Standing Committee on Student Wellbeing): the Mental Health and Wellness Steering Committee (MHSC) and the Mental Health and Wellness Advisory Committee (MHAC). Workings groups are created as need be to address specific issues.
