The Well-being Centre is a walk-in access point to mental health services on campus. Recognizing the need to reduce barriers and increase access to support, Durham College (DC) created the centre to help students navigate the mental health services available to them on campus.
In a first appointment, students meet with a team member who conducts a quick initial screening to learn more about a student’s current needs and come up with a strategy to move forward. Students are then referred to the most appropriate service(s) to support their well-being. These may include counselling, wellness coaching or care through other campus supports, such as mental health nursing at DC’s Campus Health Centre.
Wait times for further appointments vary but can be short as they are booked based on a student’s level of safety and urgency. Students can also access additional supports in the meantime.
While the Well-being Centre is a branch of the Campus Health Centre it does not provide the same services. The Well-Being Centre does not provide first aid or same day counseling and doctors are not onsite.
Please visit the Campus Health Centre if you require medical attention.
