I am the 'acadmeic colleague' from Algoma University at the Council of Ontario Universities. We basically meet to talk about system wide issues etc in Ontario. It is made up of the various university presidents and us, the academics from each school.
One of the cool initiatives that COU has started is a contest about promoting mental health using social media. I am the contact person for Algoma, and if you are an undergraduate or grad student in the Ontario system you should consider entering the contest. There is prize money and everything.
From the site:
"Social media has revolutionized the way we communicate with each other. COU wants to see how graduate and undergraduate students at Ontario’s universities can use these social media tools to promote campus mental health. Show us how you would use social media to promote positive changes in mental health at your university, and you could win a cash prize and an invitation to attend a celebration in March 2014. You can work individually or as a team. The winners will receive $1,500 for first place, $1,000for second place, and $500 for third place."
So, get to it, ideas, content, whatever. Oh yeah, a link might be useful.....
I hope to see some AU psych students get involved with this.
