Syllabus Language Regarding Stress and Support Services for Mental Well-being

You can use this language in your class syllabus to help better inform your students about the support services available to them for their mental well-being.


Including information about mental health and well-being resources on the syllabus is a way to show the important connection between learning and well-being, and to show students you care.


Acknowledge stress and available support and resources for students by including a statement on your course syllabus, such as:

We all experience stress and well-being differently. It’s part of being human. Sometimes the challenges will be manageable and other times they may seem overwhelming. Please connect with me or use the resources available to you at SFU to support you and take care of your mental health and well-being or keep these in mind for a peer or friend.
