We are striving to ensure that all Canadian student-athletes flourish in all areas of their life, including sport.


We are a charitable organization and champion for student-athlete mental health in Canada. SAMHI’s mission is to eliminate mental illness stigma in post-secondary sport and facilitate access to the resources needed to maintain and improve mental health. SAMHI is volunteer-run.

Strategic Directions
  • Adopt a student-athlete centered approach.
  • Reduce harmful mental illness stigma in sport through communication campaigns and media work.
  • Connect student-athletes, coaches and staff to the tools and resources needed to support mental health.
  • Work with governing and administrative bodies in Canadian sport to address policy and service gaps.
  • Collaborate with Canadian post-secondary institutions and community partners to establish SAMHI as a leading mental health resource for student-athletes.
