      The Inquiring Mind December 5th

      he Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary (TIM PS) is an evidence-based program designed to address and promote mental health and reduce the stigma of mental illness in an educational / student setting. Goals  The goals of the 3 hour training are to:  reduce stigma and negative attitudes towards those struggling with poor mental health help participants maintain mental health and improve resilience and coping strategies teach participants about the Mental Health Continuum Model foster a supportive campus community  support others Objectives The course's objective is to give university students the practical knowledge of mental health and mental illness so they can:  Use the mental health continuum to recognize changes in their mental health and that of others Be prepared to use skills to improve their coping and resiliency Reduce both public and self-stigma Be willing to be a part of a supportive campus environment Central Components The Inquiring Mind Post-Secondary was created with the input of students as well as faculty and staff, from the University of Calgary, with mental health-related expertise. It is delivered in a 3-hour workshop format and covers three main components: stigma reduction, resiliency skills, and the Mental Health Continuum Model. The Mental Health Continuum Model reconceptualizes how one thinks and talks about mental health by categorizing signs and indicators of good to poor mental health under a four-colour continuum: green (healthy), yellow (reacting), orange (injured), and red (ill). Beyond these main components, the program also teaches about creating a supportive campus and how to support others who may be experiencing poor mental health. The program is designed to be interactive with activities and group discussions, as well as a set of scenarios for participants to work through. TIM PS takes these very good basic skills and contextualizes them in a way that is relevant to students. The curriculum includes custom videos featuring students, providing examples to which they can relate (e.g. mid-term stress, relationship challenges, being away from home/family supports).
