    About this session
    Over the last decade, student expectations for campus mental health services have skyrocketed. Many universities have invested heavily in hiring additional full-time counselling and wellbeing staff, but they are still unable to keep pace. As a result, universities are increasingly turning to more proactive efforts to support student wellbeing, hoping that students will connect with the right-fit resources for their specific needs. 
    But questions remain – in a world of limited time and resources, which investments are the right ones? How can we create a better sense of belonging and support? What does it mean when students say that they do or don’t belong? At this one-day workshop, academic registrars and heads of student services will convene to explore a variety of imperatives related to embedding mental health and wellbeing support across the student experience. Additionally, EAB will provide an overview of best practices related to increasing student belonging by addressing the growing trends of loneliness and disconnection. Throughout the workshop, participants will engage in action planning to support an institution-wide approach to wellbeing support and identify the top priorities to address their specific institutional needs.
