Wellness in mind, body and spirit is important to your success at university. Health Services is staffed by trained service providers (family physicians, personal counselors, registered nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists and wellness educators). The following are some of the services available to you.
The Student Medical Clinic provides primary medical care for all students. You can drop in for the dispensary, the lab or a flu shot, or you can book an appointment for repeat immunizations, allergy shots, a TB skin test and more.
Mental Health Services provides holistic programming and services to help you to lead a healthier and more balanced life. You can access counselling services and support regardless of your concern, whether you’re experiencing difficulties adjusting to studying or university life, or dealing with depression and bothersome moods.
Health Education and Promotion equips you with the knowledge you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle while at university. You can access services and programs that cover a range of areas, including responsible drinking, staying warm in winter, sexual health, homesickness and nutrition.
