Mental Well-Being

I am curious about improving my overall mental health.

I am a bit stressed and looking for positive coping strategies.

I feel like I need some help and counselling with what I am feeling.


I am overwhelmed, I need help now.

Urgent crisis

As part of a large, diverse group of students, you need to feel supported by a community that encourages you to thrive. Our mental health resource hub has the tools, strategies and experts to meet you exactly where you are on your mental health journey.

You’ve come to the right place.
