Mental health is part of good overall health and it is a determining success factor while pursuing higher education. The Station SME wants to contribute to the well-being of the student population and to healthy study environments.  

The Station SME is a hub of information and tools for all things related to student mental health in Higher Education. This website showcases credible content on the subject.

  • For the college and university student community, Station SME offers quick and easy access to tools and information that promote mental health or to support a loved one.
  • For school staff, the Station SME brings together tools, practice examples, and research data to strengthen their knowledge and expertise in student mental health, aiming to provide healthy study environments.

The selected tools featured on Station SME ensure diverse information to meet the needs of a wide range of target audiences and institutions. New content will be added regularly over time. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to share an interesting tool or practice aimed at supporting student mental health.

Station SME is created by the Initiative sur la santé mentale étudiante en enseignement supérieur (ISMÉ).
