The MCS Mental Health Task Force is currently composed of 4 members* that are determined to support the mental health and wellbeing of our MCS faculty and staff, and in so doing indirectly positively impact students. Inspired by the mission of the Okanagan Charter, the purpose of this Task Force is to raise safety and health awareness, support MCS faculty/staff in the process of reporting and managing critical incidents, and to ensure that faculty/staff have access to up-to-date resources and training. The goal is to ensure that we are proactive as a unit in supporting the needs of our community regarding their mental health and wellbeing.
*The membership of the committee should ideally include 1 faculty member from CSC, MAT, and STA respectively, and one full time MCS staff member. A 2/3 majority for faculty is acceptable.
