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.
