Mental Health & Wellness Engagement Committee

The Mental Health and Wellness Engagement (MHWE) Committee is a working committee responsible for facilitating the development of a positive, supportive, inclusive community and for promoting mental health and wellness within the Faculty of Nursing. We implement actions and events to develop a shared sense of community within our faculty (faculty, staff, students, adjuncts, alumni, emeriti, Medicine Hat College campus) and a connection to strategic plan advancement.
