Mental & Emotional Health

The Student Wellness Hub is a renovated space, with increased staff, clinicians and medical professionals, for any and all health and wellness needs that you may have. It is now open and is located on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the Brown Building. It has consolidated and expanded Health Services, Counselling and Psychiatric Services, so you won’t have to restart if or when you go between units. You also won't have to guess which service is right for you.

At the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD), the assistance offered through myAccess targets a wide variety of situations, from medical diagnoses to mental health issues and anxiety disorders, and also includes long term support to accompany students with Learning Disabilities, ADD or ADHD, Asperger’s and autism.
