Student Wellness

A group of students in the middle of a discussion, with two of them raising their hands.

Life can be joyful and stimulating. But life can also be difficult and challenging. We've got your back when things get tough.

While a good chat with you best friend is great, talking to our student wellness counsellors, who are trained professional skilled at effective interventions, is a different experience that could help in other ways.

Seeing a counsellor does not show that you are weak, but instead that you are brave to face life's challenges and seek a way forward.

Our door is always open, so feel free to stop by!
