The Canadian Students' Nightline Association

Striving to improve access to mental health support service on university campuses.

For most students, their time at university is a positive experience. However for some, it can be characterized by periods of stress, anxiety, loneliness and depression. Rising fees, academic pressures, adapting to a new environment and being away from home can also impact student's mental wellbeing.

Mental health issues among students in Canadian universities have dramatically increased in the last 10 years. For many, this is the first time they are experiencing mental health issues and they might not know where to go to access ressources. For those trying to get access mental health ressources on campus, the waiting time can go for months.

 

Students need to have rapid access to support when these negative feelings emerges in order to prevent the development of mental health disorders.   

 

 

 

 

 

Nightlines offer university students a safe space to talk about their feelings or whatever’s troubling them without fear of being judged or ridiculed. Open every night to everyone, Nightline provides students with the opportunity to connect right away with a peer that can understand what they are going through, and that can provide support and ressources tailored to the student's needs. 

The Canadian Students' Nightline Association is determined to :

1) Create and implement nightlines in university campuses so that students have access to the support they deserve. 

2) Work with universities to tailor the programs to their own needs

3) Offer all the necessary tools and guidance to create and implement a nightline safely and according to the best practices

4) Offer ongoing training, support and guidance to nightline chapters
