St. Clair College and the University of Windsor will receive $729,389 in provincial funding to help increase access to mental health and addiction services for students enrolled at the various campuses.

The funding will strengthen community partnerships, increase the number of mental health workers and programs, and immediately expand access for students to the provincial mental health and addictions system during COVID-19.

This funding is part of the province’s total investment of $26.25 million for mental health supports for postsecondary students in 2020-21. It will support more services for students on-campus and virtually and can also be used to address the needs of vulnerable and diverse groups, such as Indigenous students, LGBTQ students and students with disabilities.

“We are extremely grateful for the provincial government’s enhanced support of the mental health services which we provide to our students,” said St. Clair College President Patti France. “The incidence of debilitating stress and depression affecting young people has been escalating almost annually, and it has unfortunately been exacerbated by the pandemic. We plan to significantly expand our support services to students with this new provincial funding.”
