Support sessions following the death of a member of the student community

We learned with great sadness about the death of a member of the student community. All of our thoughts are with our student’s family and friends today.

The University has put in place measures and resources to provide you with support if needed.

Two external counsellors will facilitate support sessions that will allow you to share your reactions and help each other at this difficult time:

Thursday, January 18 (FSS 4007):

  • 7:00 pm - Support and listening session
  • 8:00 pm - Individual or small group counselling (as needed)
  • 9:00 pm - Support and listening session
  • 10:00 pm - Individual or small group counselling (as needed)

Friday, January 19 (FSS 4007):

  • Between 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm, two external counsellors will be available for small group or individual counselling (as needed)

We also encourage all students in need of support to visit the university's Mental Health and Wellness website for more information about the resources available on campus and in the community.
