The Wellness in Residence (WIR) program supports students mental and emotional well-being through a partnership with Student Wellness Services. The program aims to increase knowledge and awareness about mental health and improve access to mental health services and supports.
The program is available to you no matter what building you live in. The WIR team consists of Wellness Community Ambassadors, student support advisors, counsellors, health promotion staff, and Residence WHAT volunteers (Wellness & Health Awareness Team). We encourage you to talk to them at events and programs. Wellness Community Ambassadors are students who live in each community and have received training from Student Wellness Services and work with the residence community to promote wellness activities and offer student support.
