International Student Program
Mental Health Care Plan for International Students- Evidence-based solutions for the unique challenges faced by Chinese International Students living in Canada.
Mental Health Care Plan for International Students project is a result of a Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR) on needs assessment for mental health and wellbeing of Chinese international students in Great Toronto Area. It was conducted by Wellness Counselling Centre for Youth Canada in partnership with community members and partners.
This project is designed to meet the needs of Chinese international students for their mental health and wellbeing based on the findings of our CBPR study. We have developed a unique approach to break down the barriers identified in this study and the strategies to close up the service gaps discovered by students themselves and the service providers working with them.
