Our team

Our team in Mental Health Services is a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals. Our team provides support through coaching, consultation, psycho-education, as well as internal and external referrals. Students have commonly sought 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 longer term support, the team will make appropriate referrals to internal services in Durham College and/or external resources within our community.
