COVID-19 Update: Mental Health Online Services

In response to concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and the University's shift to online/remote learning, STU Mental Health is making changes to the way mental health supports and counselling are offered to students.

Counselling Services will now be offering secure, private and confidential counselling appointments remotely. Students can opt for secure video-conferencing or telephone sessions with one of our trained, certified counsellors.

Remote counselling appointments are available throughout the week. Evening appointments are also available. Some in-person counselling appointments will be available when deemed appropriate.

Counselling for International Students 

Please note that due to jurisdictional issues, STU Mental Health counsellors are unable to provide counselling services to International students studying abroad. To ensure these students receive mental health supports, STU Mental Health has invested in an external counselling service, keep.meSAFE. This service allows students to connect with a trained, certified counsellor wherever they are in the world through telephone, text, video-conferencing and, when appropriate, in-person sessions.

International students studying outside of Canada will automatically be enrolled and sent directions regarding how to access this service. For more information please feel free to contact Kelly at mentalhealth@stu.ca

Booking an Appointment

If you would like to book an appointment, please email mentalhealth@stu.ca
If you have questions, call 453-7213.

 

In addition, students can browse our website for free and effective self-help resources, videos, and supports.

Information and resources will also be shared via our social media platforms:
