Counselling Faculty and other post-secondary mental health professionals face challenges and issues at work that often differ from those of other faculty and academic staff. In the face of increasing demands for mental health services on post-secondary campuses, as well as the cross-sector impact of COVID-19 on working conditions, the 2021 CAUT Post-Secondary Counselling Survey aimed to identify key issues of concern for Faculty Counsellors and other post-secondary mental health professionals.
