Coming soon — Mental Health Student Support Program
SFU, with support from the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS), is bringing the keep.meSAFE Student Support Program (SSP) to SFU students as a two-year pilot. Starting Aug 1, 2018 all SFU students will have access to 24/7 mental health and acculturation support through the use of technology – with in-person options also available. This program will complement existing mental health and well-being support and initiatives at SFU and will be integrated with relevant SFU services and supports. Information as well as education opportunities for faculty/ staff about the program, including how to refer students, will be made available to all departments starting in August and continuing into the Fall term.
