How might we keep students engaged with mental health and well-being supports online at a post-secondary institution?

Challenge Summary

With the challenges and changes of accessing student services in a pandemic and post-pandemic world, SCHW is looking to develop an online/virtual space that will allow York University students to access on-demand mental health and well-being content and services through a virtual portal.

We are looking to understand the student’s journey through virtual spaces, better understand how students engage virtually, as well as understand how to keep students engaged. SCHW’s goal is to develop a portal that will make mental health and well-being services accessible, engaging, and responsive to York’s diverse student population in Ontario and abroad.

Sustainable Development Goals



Student Counselling, Health, and Well-being (SCHW) provides health education, mental health counselling, and well-being services to York University students, as well as acting as a resource for staff and faculty partners.
