January 24, 2023. John Abbott College is thrilled to announce winning the Implementation Grant of $100,000 from Bell Let’s Talk Post-Secondary Fund!

This generous gift allows John Abbott College counsellors to continue developing mental health initiatives specific to the needs of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) student community. In particular, the funds will enable John Abbott to: retain the consultative services of a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)/Mental Health expert; to diversify the wellness promoting services available to BIPOC students; to build alliances with community organizations servicing the BIPOC community; and to continue learning the latest in culturally sensitive mental health practices.

The John Abbott College community would like to thank the Bell Let’s Talk campaign for their ongoing dedication and efforts in support of mental health.

Let’s all continue to raise awareness for mental health at JAC on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 on Bell Let’s Talk Day.
