The UBC Mental Health Awareness Club (UBC MHAC) is a student-run initiative that was founded in the summer of 2010 under the direction of Michael Lee, OSOT professor and curriculum coordinator, the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) advisory group, and OT masters students. The group initially consisted of mainly OT students; however with persistent effort from the previous executives, the club was able to reach increase their target audience within the UBC community by the end of the summer 2012. With every new academic year, the UBC MHAC strives to not only complete each section of the mandate, but to also ensure club sustainability through internal mentorship.
