Mental health educational groups

These multi-session, ongoing groups provide support, mental health information, and strategies to promote your well-being. 

Single Session Counselling

Single session counselling appointments let you access support when you need it. A counsellor will work with you while focusing on your strengths to identify skills and strategies you can practice immediately to start resolving the issue(s) you have identified. You may access single session counselling more than once. With appointments available from Monday to Friday, you’ll usually be able to book a 75-minute appointment within a week.

Referral required:

Coordinated care

The purpose of coordinated care is to help you reach your optimum level of wellness through practical problem solving, resource navigation, and linking & liaising with campus and community resources.

Brief individual counselling

Using a brief model, individual counselling aims to help you address concerns through connection with helpful resources and short-term, goal-focused support.
