Mental Health & Wellness Support Program

One's university years can be among the most stressful in a person's life, with academic, social, emotional, and financial demands competing for an individual's limited time and energy.  Since the success and well-being of our students are our highest priorities, the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology is proud to offer a Mental Health & Wellness Support Program.

What We Do

The goal of this program is to provide an immediate web of support for students in need, and which will complement the professional services provided by McGill's Counselling and Mental Health.  We are here to offer a non-judgmental ear and a helping hand for anyone in crisis or who simply needs to talk.

Who We Are

Our support team is comprised of 7 undergraduate students in Anatomy (U1-U3), 7 graduate students (MSc, PhD, and TAs), 7 faculty members, and 3 student affairs and administrative members.  All supporters have been trained by McGill Counselling Services.

How It Works

1-Reaching Out

If you would like to meet with one of our trained supporters, please take a moment to fill out our quick and easy WEBFORM, or drop by the Anatomy office (Strathcona Building, Rooms M29 and M30, Monday - Friday, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm), where Penny or Joseph can assist you in person.

2- Matching

We will match you with the supporter who best fits your preferences (e.g. student or staff, male or female, etc).  You will be matched within 48 hours. 

3- Contact

Your assigned supporter will contact you to schedule a meeting at a mutually convenient time.  In order to ensure the most immediate and effective support possible, the maximum waiting time for this meeting will be one week.
