This session will begin with a review of the psycho-social struggles international students face and the role of technology in supporting student mental health. Representatives from Simon Fraser University and Fraser International College will share their experiences with international student mental health, its impact on their institution, and why they decided to implement a digital mental health program. Using specific examples, the college will describe how the program integrates with and is promoted as an integrated part of campus culture, an extension of on-campus resources such as Campus Counselling, and the positive outcomes each institution has seen.
