Counselling and Mental Health Structural Integration

We are excited to announce that the structural integration of Counselling and Mental Health Services has begun. In order to optimize service delivery to students, all clinicians will become one unit under the name Counselling Services and all psychiatrists will form a new unit called Psychiatric Services. As we implement these changes, we commit to communicating all relevant updates to our students, through this site.

Students who wish to see a psychologist, counsellor or therapist should visit Counselling Services in the Brown Student Services Building, Suite 4200, East Wing or telephone 514-398-3601. Students who wish to see a psychiatrist should visit Psychiatric Services in the Brown Student Services Building, Suite 5500, West Wing or telephone 514-398-6019.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
