Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the Student Health Clinic cannot offer doctor drop-in appointments on Tuesday, October 16th. Nurses will still be available to take drop-ins, and pre-booked appointments will proceed as scheduled.
October 1-7 is Mental Illness Awareness Week in Canada, a public awareness campaign to help educate the population on the reality of living with mental illness. McGill Student Services is excited to take part in the following activities and programming to honour this important week and help students find support and learn valuable coping tools:
Construction will soon begin on McGill’s new Rossy Student Wellness Hub. The third floor of the Brown Building will be renovated to provide a “one-stop shop” for all of Student Services’ health-related activities.
Because the current Student Health Service will need to be renovated, services will be relocated during construction. Beginning on Monday, October 15th, the front desk for the Student Health Service will be located in Room 3100 in the East Wing of the Brown Building (directly in front of Scholarships and Student Aid).
For national HPV Prevention Week, join the McGill Student Health Service team in a collaborative event to increase awareness and promote prevention.
Did you know that the human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common STI in the world, affecting up to 3 out of 4 sexually active Canadians?
Paths // Ways
The school year begins and the warm days run their course. We take a second to step outside the high hum of busy-being and instead meander our way through trees turned radiant. As we walk we ponder and reflect: What avenues are opening up to us this autumn season? Which paths have we taken that have led us to today? We consider the infinite ways of being and doing and living on this Earth and the infinite directions one’s path may go. Not quite knowing where the present route leads, we wander on.
