Paws to Relax


The past couple of years have been especially difficult, with the COVID-19 pandemic creating changes in our ways of working and teaching, how we interact with co-workers and our every day social interactions.  As we navigate back to a near normal campus environment, feelings of anxiety, stress and uncertainty may be present.  Therapy dogs to the rescue!  Therapy dogs hope to provide a bit of comfort, joy and mental well-being to our faculty and staff on campus.

The Paws to Relax therapy dog program will make regular campus visits throughout the 2022/2023 academic year.  Special thanks to St. John Ambulance for their service.


Tuesday, December 6, 2022             10:00 am to 11:30 am
Thursday, December 8, 2022            12:30 pm to 2:30 pm

Paws to Relax therapy dogs will be in the Research and Innovation Centre Atrium

The Clinic provides an additional service to community residents, especially those with moderate to mild psychological concerns who may not be able to easily access other services.Clients and students benefit from clinical experience of clinical faculty members who are registered and abreast of the most recent research in the field of clinical psychology.

All clients will be provided services by a PhD student in Clinical Psychology under close supervision of registered doctoral psychologists. This may involve sessions with both the student-therapist and supervisor or the student-therapist with close review of sessions by the supervisor.Services offered in the Clinic vary from year to year depending on the expertise of the Clinic supervisors.

•Individually based cognitive behavioural therapy for adults with symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Student Wellness Centre

The University of Regina is the first university in Canada to open a nurse practitioner-led Student Wellness Centre on campus, and staff are ready to begin providing primary healthcare services to students.  

“I think the University community should be very proud that they have been innovative enough in their thinking to realize that this is an opportunity and that they had the foresight to see that it was a possibility,” said Maureen Klenk, Associate Dean (Student Wellness) of the Faculty of Nursing at the U of R, and one of the nurse practitioners at the Wellness Centre. 

“The Student Wellness Centre really is a unique feature, and it speaks to how the U of R believes and values providing service while creating a place of connection for our students,” added Dr. Cheryl Pollard, Dean of the Faculty of Nursing at the U of R. “We’re here to serve our student population. We’re creating a home. We’re creating a space where people can thrive, whether that’s through creating a healing space or whether that’s helping them achieve their academic dreams. The U of R really has some powerful demonstrations of that commitment, and the Student Wellness Centre is one of them.”

A full list of the services offered can be found on the Wellness Centre’s website. Hours are Monday to Friday – 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Anyone experiencing an emergency is asked to call 9-1-1.
