Introducing the Engineering Mental Health Steward Program

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science recognizes the importance of mental health and well-being in the lives of our students. That's why we are excited to introduce the Engineering Mental Health Steward (EMHS) program – a dedicated initiative aimed at fostering a culture of mental health awareness, support, and empowerment within our academic community.

What is an Engineering Mental Health Steward (EMHS)?

Engineering Mental Health Steward are students representing each discipline who serve as beacons of mental health advocacy and support within their peer community. They champion good mental health practices, break down the stigma surrounding mental health, and educate others by providing information on mental health resources available through Queens Engineering and the broader Queens community. EMHSs are students who have undergone specialized training in mental health and are committed to promoting mental health practices among their peers.

Role of the EMHS:

  • Advocacy and Support: EMHSs are your go-to advocates for mental health and well-being on campus. They are here to listen, support, and guide you to the resources you may need.
  • Promoting Awareness: EMHSs actively promote mental health awareness and education among their fellow students. They organize and participate in mental health events and initiatives to ensure everyone has access to vital information and resources.
  • Reducing Stigma: We believe in eliminating the stigma surrounding mental health. EMHSs play a crucial role in breaking down these barriers, encouraging open conversations, and fostering an environment where seeking help is seen as a sign of strength.
  • Resource Hub: Need information about mental health services and support available on campus? EMHSs are your connection to these resources. They are knowledgeable about the services offered and can point you in the right direction.
  • Training and Professionalism: Our EMHSs receive training on mental health-related topics, ensuring they are well-equipped to support their peers effectively. They maintain the highest standards of privacy and professionalism in all interactions.
