Our Expertise and Your Privacy 

We are here to provide accessible, evidence-based, and inclusive mental health services to our diverse student community. Mental health is an important component of student success. As such, we strive to enhance the mental health and well-being of our students through responsive, engaging, and preventative services.

Our clinicians are registered psychologists with extensive experience in treating a wide variety of mental health concerns. Services are provided in accordance with the principles of the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists.

Information shared in counselling is confidential, including the fact that you have come for counselling. Personal health information is not disclosed to University faculty or staff, parents, or other persons and agencies without your written permission. There are a few ethical and legal limitations to confidentiality that the clinician will discuss with you during the first meeting.

Planning Your First Meeting With Us

Your first meeting with a clinician will be during our drop-in clinics, (see schedule, below). The drop-in schedule may be subject to change.

Drop-in sessions are for our first timers and clients not yet assigned to a clinician. Typically, your first drop-in session will focus on a primary concern, promote resolve, and recommend helpful actions, supports and resources, to attain your wellness goals. Drop-in sessions may also be utilized for brief episodic care, with an emphasis on improving your present circumstances. Drop-in sessions may be repeated and may be with a different clinician.

Questions? Please call 306-585-4491.

If you or someone you know, requires counselling for an urgent situation, contact us as soon as possible.

Drop-in Clinics Schedule

Drop-in clinics for the Winter 2020 semester are cancelled as of Friday, March 20, 2020.

  • Mondays: 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Please check in at the Student Success desk (Riddell Centre 2nd Floor, 230). First come, first served. Drop-in clinics can get very busy from time to time. You might have to wait a while as we are working to see everyone that has checked in. On rare occasions the drop-in clinic may be full and you will be signed up for an alternative time. We understand that this may be inconvenient to you. We value your attendance and we want to assist you in getting the support you are seeking.

Providing Assistance to Students 

Faculty and staff encountering students who appear to be struggling may wish to provide direct support and where appropriate, make referrals to other on-campus services. Information about how to assist students in distress can be found in the Student Affairs section of UR Source, under Counselling Services. This includes a Care Report which will help you gain support for both yourself and the student.
