Wellness and Accessibility

Queen’s University is committed to achieving healthy and sustainable workplaces that enhance the mental health and wellbeing of faculty and staff.

The content you will find on this area of the Human Resources website is designed to support both the Principal’s Commission on Mental Health and the University’s Academic Plan. The Principal’s Commission on Mental Health focuses on enacting change based on the report’s 116 recommendations, framed within a four-level pyramidal framework for a mental health strategy at Queen’s.

This strategy includes:

  • Promoting a healthy community
  • Easing transition and fostering resilience
  • Encouraging help-seeking and helping behaviour
  • Providing effective response, service and care

The University’s academic plan has four pillars, one of which is “Health, Wellness and the Community.” Mental and physical health and wellness is critical to ensuring engagement both on and off campus and we hope that this website can provide you with some effective tools to help yourself and support each other.
