This year’s theme was “Cannabis on Campus: What Now?
George Brown’s annual mental health conference was hosted by George Brown College's Centre for Preparatory & Liberal Studies and Academic Services & Student Affairs departments, with sponsorship from the RBC Foundation.
Presenters and attendees explored:
Cannabis use and mental health and how the upcoming legislation may impact our campuses and our communities. Speakers shared their expertise on supporting students for maximum mental health and well-being. The Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental
Health also launched their Cannabis Guidelines and Recommendations for Ontario’s Campuses Toolkit.
