Wellness in mind, body and spirit is important to your success at university. The Student Wellness Centre 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 on both campuses.
The Student Wellness Centre on campus is the home for all physical, emotional and mental health services on both campuses. It supports student in their academic journey by meeting their clinical care and health education care needs.
You can access comprehensive physical health services that cover primary medical care, health promotion and disease prevention. These services include immunization, allergy injections, STI information, medical referrals and first aid.
Mental health is a continuum, and you may find yourself in different places on that continuum throughout your university career. Laurier recognizes the need for supports at various points, and provides emotional and mental health services and resources you can access. If you’re at the Brantford campus, these supports include counselling services and support regardless of your concern, whether you’re experiencing difficulties in studying or adjusting to university life.
