Col­leges spend­ing more on men­tal health: Re­port

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - NEWS -

On­tario col­leges spend $160 mil­lion more than they re­ceive from the govern­ment to pro­vide men­tal health sup­port for stu­dents — a need that con­tin­ues to grow, says a new re­port from Deloitte. Col­leges are “cur­rently di­vert­ing sig­nif­i­cant funds from gen­eral op­er­a­tions and aca­demic pro­gram­ming to pro­vide stu­dent at-risk sup­port pro­grams and ser­vices,” says the re­port.
