Walk-In Wellness Clinic

A barrier-free wellness clinic, accessible without an appointment to students, staff, faculty and community members.

About Us

The clinic was launched in an effort to address urgent issues related to mental health. One in 5 Canadians have a mental health diagnosis, and 6 in 10 primary care visits are for mental health issues, or consequences of chronic health conditions. A recent survey of Canadian students showed that 89% of students feel overwhelmed in their daily life. Whether you are a student, faculty, staff or community member who is struggling, we are here to help.

Our clinic started out as a five-week trial in the fall of 2018, but is now a permanent part of the Psychology Clinic on campus. We are happy to be able to provide this service to our community on a permanent basis.

How it works
