Mental Health “Management” of Students

June 16, 2011

University of Ottawa Senate Members received documentation today from the Office of the Vice-President of Governance, forwarded by the University’s Academic Colleague to the Council of Ontario Universities, Dr. Linda Garcia, regarding “managing post-secondary students who are experiencing mental health issues.”

Law firm Hicks-Morley provided the Council of Ontario Universities and Colleges Ontario with a legal opinion (HERE) and a summary of case law (HERE) surrounding the powers of post-secondary institutions to force psychiatric assessments on students and bar them from campus grounds.

Will the Senate request equivalent legal advice regarding the management of professors with perceived mental instabilities?  And how about University Executives?

    Do you EVER think things through?
