Students support students at the Orillia Campus

As part of the new residence welcome package at the Orillia Campus, students from the Community Education Partnership Centre (CEPC) are providing their peers with invaluable information about mental health awareness.

Last year, Social Service Worker students Michelle Carnahan and Hailey Coates created a suicide prevention brochure for Start Talking, a project run by the Simcoe County Suicide Awareness Council. They teamed up with the council through the Community Projects Initiative.

Student leaders hold up the brochure as they prepare residence welcome packages.

“It is wonderful to see the results of their fantastic work. I am so proud of them!”
