This series of online mental health modules is freely accessible, and aims to improve students' education on a number of topics related to mental health and mental illness.
Improving your knowledge about mental health and mental illness can help you learn to recognize and manage changes in your own mood and respond appropriately. It can also help you to learn how best to support your friends and peers, and become a mental health advocate. Research suggests that increased mental health literacy is linked to reduced stigma, more effective help-seeking, and improved mental health outcomes [1-2].

how do i access a module?
You can view a module by clicking the "ACCESS" button. If the button says "COMING SOON", it means we aren't quite done building that module yet!
How are the modules created?
Content for all modules was designed by students like you!
Student volunteers contributing to the Network let us know what topics they'd like to see covered. Next, a few students who are interested in that topic will take on the project of gathering preliminary content, including evidence-based references. This "first draft" is then circulated to all students within the Network for feedback. A secondary review for reliability and validity is then conducted by subject matter experts, including mental health researchers and/or healthcare practitioners, where appropriate.
The final version of the module is then assembled with all the aesthetics and linked to the Network!
I HAVE AN IDEA FOR A MODULE
