Wellness Advising Services

Local Wellness Advisors (LWAs) are trained mental health clinicians embedded within faculties and services to orient and connect you with the appropriate support resource - on-campus or off-campus - for your unique situation.

With similar educational backgrounds to counsellors, LWAs also facilitate wellness programming tailored to your faculty or identified community and work with departments on wellness awareness, prevention and early intervention.

Local Wellness Advisors each offer targeted mental health workshops, wellness outreach through our social media channels, as well as one-on-one appointments.

Meet with a Local Wellness Advisor


 Your First Session

LWA appointments are different from appointments with a counsellor in that LWAs have a deeper knowledge and understanding of your experience as a School of Continuing Studies student. Appointments are up to 90 minutes long, including time to complete intake forms. You can book your appointment online!

During a consultation appointment, your LWA will:

  1. Conduct an assessment
  2. Provide a brief intervention
  3. And develop a wellness plan with you based on your needs
  4. The goal is to provide you with guidance, information and coaching.
