Local Wellness Advisor at Schulich
Meet Jennifer Mosher, Schulich's School of Music local wellness advisor.
What is an LWA?
For those who don’t know me or my role, I’m the Local Wellness Advisor (or LWA) at Schulich. LWA’s are trained mental health clinicians embedded within faculties and services to orient and connect students with the appropriate support resource - on-campus or off-campus - for their unique situation. LWAs also facilitate wellness programming tailored to the faculty or identified community and work with departments on wellness awareness, prevention and early intervention. We also offer targeted mental health workshops, wellness outreach and one-on-one appointments.
How does a student meet with you?
- Students who would like to meet with me for a 1:1 appointment can go to the Student Wellness Hub website, scroll down to “Local Wellness Advisors”, then students can select “Music”. The link to book an appointment directly is here.
Have a specific concern, or looking for resources?
- 1:1 support is available with your LWA. These appointments are also available throughout the summer for any student physically located in Quebec. Book an appointment here.
Therapy Assisted Online (TAO)
- Access through the mobile app or the website. Students can access the mindfulness library, complete online psychoeducation modules in a self-directed manner, or in collaboration with their counsellor or LWA
