Mental Health Services

College years can be times of growth and learning, life challenges and significant stress. The team in Mental Health Services understands asking for help can be difficult. Sometimes you may be unaware how large the issue is, what resources are available to help and how to work through current situations blocking you from your full potential. If you are feeling lost, facing a problem you don't know how to handle or would just like to talk to someone in a safe place, we're here to help.

Mental Health Services comprises a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals. We provide coaching, counselling, psycho-education, as well as internal and external referrals. Students commonly seek support for issues such as:

  • Coping with anxiety/stress
  • Feelings of depression, sadness and loneliness
  • Substance use
  • Coping with loss/grief
  • Psychiatric medication management
  • Low energy and motivation
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Anger/conflict
  • Gender and sexuality issues
  • Self esteem/body image
  • Self harm/suicidal feelings

When students present with long-standing issues or require long-term support, the team makes appropriate referrals to other services within the college and/or to external resources in the community.
