The increase in mental health concerns among university and college-aged youth is well documented. There is widespread recognition that new and innovative ways to support these students is required. This session will demonstrate how the effective implementation of 24/7 Student Support Programs using technology have cultivated student engagement, promoted mental wellness, and minimized student and institutional risk. Mohawk College and Loyalist College will share tech driven initiatives which provide intercultural support and awareness, and 24/7 wrap-around access to culturally and linguistically relevant clinical mental health support services. Combining technology with 24/7 culturally and linguistically matched clinical support has revolutionized student support in the time of internationalization on campus.
