Local Wellness Advisors

The Local Wellness Advisors (LWAs) are trained mental health clinicians assigned specifically to McGill Residence. Much like counsellors, LWAs explore with students how to support their mental health and wellbeing. The LWAs also act as mental health resources to the entire Residence Life team.

You can book one-on-one appointments directly with the LWAs through the online booking system or reach out to other LWAs from other faculties, or specific to community groups, as well as other clinicians at the Student Wellness Hub.
