Require Urgent Care?

Students with cold and flu-like symptoms should connect with virtual care through Dialogue or Maple before making an appointment for on-campus care.  Getting vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19 is the best way to protect yourself and our community. Vaccination is safe and free for everyone.

The Student Wellness Hub has a wealth of tools to help support students as we return to campus this Fall. Every resource is built on evidence-based psychology, providing concrete strategies to help you make the transition. In addition to our resources showcased on @HealthierMcGill, you can access other resources here through our Well-come Back webpage and learn more about the initiative and the resources available to you, our students. 


What is Resilience & Why is it Important?

Psychologists and researchers define resilience as the ability to adapt in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—such as family and relationship problems, serious health issues, or workplace and financial stressors. Adapting can include mobilizing knowledge, skills, resources, and psychological strengths. As much as resilience involves “bouncing back” from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth.

Stress, uncertainty, loss, and lack of connection have impacted all of us, no matter where we’ve been located this past year. The following resources will provide you with tools, tips, and strategies to face adversity and help you transition back to a world of in-person learning and interactions.
