The President’s Advisory Committee on Student Mental Health (PAC-SMH) hosted a supporting panel launch day Thursday, July 27, 2017. It was the first time the supporting panels were able to meet with each other and brought together perspectives from students, faculty, staff, community partners, alumni, and parents.
The members of the President’s Advisory Committee on Student Mental Health (PAC-SMH) have reviewed the many applications and selected supporting panel members for the five topic panels: Student Experience, Student Services, Community Partners, Academic, Mental Health Experts. The large number of applicants from across our University of Waterloo community affirms the passion and awareness for developing and enhancing mental health and wellness services and systems on campus. Thank you!
