Grad Minds updates

Grad Minds is the University of Toronto’s Graduate Student Mental Health Committee. Grad Minds promotes well-being and provide mental health education through programs, initiatives, and events, with a focus on developing psychological resilience, personal skill development, self-care practices, and de-stigmatizing mental health problems.


Working towards our goal to promote advocacy towards mental health awareness, our mission states, “Mental health conversations are essential; we can’t be silent anymore. Our aim is to diminish the shame and stigma that surrounds mental health.” To help achieve this goal, we are asking the graduate students to share their personal experiences of what it’s like to be in graduate school/academia. All submissions are anonymous.
