Mental Health & Wellness
We know that students face many barriers in accessing mental health supports. Long wait times, documentation requirements, and lack of anonymity are just a few. During exam times and dark winters, your mental health may suffer even more. That’s why the UTSU works with the University of Toronto to make students more aware of supports offered by U of T, and offers its own services like Listening Peers, a peer support program, and UTSU’s Got You, a program that provides free snacks and destressing activities during exam season.
See below for current supports and organizations we recommend, and feel free to contact us regarding how we can improve and expand these resources.
A program for students by students, this peer support program connects students with other students for issues around school, work, personal challenges and more.
Access free, virtual mental health and wellness supports, 24/7, 365. See what Empower Me has to offer.
