UniVenture is a research project that aims to implement a psychosocial intervention to promote the mental health and well-being of Canadian undergraduate students and reduce substance abuse within Canadian universities.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the program among young adults, and to compare the different intervention modalities (face-to-face or online). The interventions offered aim to understand the links between academic success, student mental health and substance use.

What is the UniVenture program?
UniVenture is a prevention program based on your personality traits and designed to help you achieve your long-term goals. This program an adaptation of the Preventure program which is recognized by the scientific community and is used internationally.
The UniVenture study is a multi-site partnership that aims to test and implement the PreVenture student wellness program at five Canadian universities. The project will conduct interventions with university students at Dalhousie University, St.Francis Xavier University, York University, Université de Montréal and the University of British Columbia. We are currently recruiting students from the Université de Montréal to participate in our workshops. These workshops will allow students to discover the challenges of their personality and thus better identify the obstacles that could hinder the achievement of their long-term goals.
The content of the PreVenture workshops was adapted to the meet the needs of Canadian undergraduate students and reflect their real life situations.
Now that the pilot study has been completed, we are offering a PreVenture training course for graduate-level psychology and psycho-education students at the Université de Montréal. Through this training, students undergo training and supervision to become a certified Preventure facilitators.
The Preventure program is offered to undergraduate students at the Université de Montréal. These workshops allow recruited students to learn more about themselves, how they function in their daily lives and how their decisions and actions affect their quality of life and the achievement of their long-term goals.
The aim of the study is to improve the well-being of students in Canadian universities and to explore which intervention format is most accessible to them and effective in improving their well-being, mental health and academic success. Preventure workshops will be conducted during the fall and winter semesters on the UdeM campus.
