Carleton U Going To The Dogs

A special pilot program is coming to Carleton. Next week marks the launch of the university’s new therapy dogs pilot program – a campus-wide mental health initiative. The unique program integrates Carleton employees as therapy dog handlers in order to foster a supportive environment for students that can help address mild to moderate mental health needs and facilitate referrals. The thoroughly trained dogs have passed the Ottawa Therapy Dogs evaluation and will be receiving CKC Canine Good Neighbour certification. The handlers have been provided with mental health training to ensure they are equipped to support students in this role. As part of the program, the Carleton therapy dogs will greet students during weekly office hours and attend special events throughout the term. The project will be officially unveiled Thursday September 13th.c (news release)
