History in Practice

Mental health is an issue in Canada and globally, but it is hard to find progressive, equitable educational resources on the topic. History in Practice (HiP) was co-created by academic specialists and community experts with direct experience with mental health services.  HiP’s thematic modules expand critical thinking skills and student potential for fostering positive change in the mental health world.
