More About Make Some Noise for Mental Health
Created and implemented in 2015 by the SAIT Trojans Outreach Program, Make Some Noise for Mental Health has grown into an ACAC conference-wide awareness campaign to break stigmas around mental health. By involving student-athletes, Make Some Noise for Mental Health is intended to encourage empathy, understanding and open-mindedness, while promoting the resources and supports available on campuses and in communities.
GPRC is proud to continue to be a part of this award-winning campaign, which in 2016 expanded to include the 17 ACAC member institutions and 11 communities. This year, the ACAC and Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Alberta Division are excited to team up with RBC for the third year in a row, as the Make Some Noise for Mental Health presenting sponsor.
RBC has also supported GPRC and our students directly, with the RBC Centre for Wellbeing on our Grande Prairie campus. The RBC Centre for Student Wellbeing aligns with RBC’s commitment to mental health by providing resources to help students feel welcome, valued, confident, safe, and heard. Resources through the Centre for Student Wellbeing such as the Student Ambassador Program and the Elder in Residence Program are actively assisting students with issues that directly relate to their mental health and wellbeing. These resources are readily accessible free of charge on the Grande Prairie campus, and are continuously being evaluated and modified to ensure their continued effectiveness.
