Need help dealing with stress?

It’s amazing how fast the summer comes and goes. We hope you enjoyed orientation week – because the school year has finally started! There are few things more exciting than studying something new and moving toward a career. But it can also be very stressful, especially in the first year of school, to get used to life away from home or make important decisions about your future.

If you know you have difficulties with your mood, your anxiety, or self-care, try consulting Student Wellness Services’ Self-Help Workbooks – if you need to schedule an appointment with a counsellor, make it happen.
