Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) Post-Secondary Student Mental Health Dialogue

National College Health Assessment (NCHA)

The ACHA-National College Health Assessment (NCHA) is a nationally recognized research survey that assists in collecting precise data about our students’ health habits, behaviors, and perceptions. Post-secondary students are a diverse yet distinct population with specific health risks and needs. Having current, relevant data about our students’ health helps us enhance campus-wide health promotion, prevention, and support services.
