Wellness Wednesdays

Career Services and Student Wellness Services are partnering to promote wellness to students from a personal and career perspective.

Make career planning less stressful

Every month during the fall and winter semesters, we host workshops and drop-in sessions at Career Services. Dr. Anna Lisa Ciccocioppo, a registered psychologist and counsellor from Student Wellness Services, leads workshops and group sessions that are focused on maintaining your mental health while you pursue your academic and professional career goals.

The drop-in career clinics are an opportunity to come by Career Services and speak with a counsellor about questions you may have your future. Your questions do not have to fit the theme of the month; however, the theme may inspire you to come and learn more about various resources that can be helpful to you. No registration required!

Workshops, led by Dr. Ciccocioppo, are guided group sessions that provide you with insight and techniques that you can use to make planning your future less stressful.

Wellness Wednesdays take place from 2 – 3 p.m. in Career Services (MSC 188).
