How it works

Acknowledge stress and available support services for students by including a statement on your course syllabus.


Stress can be a normal part of your student experience. Sometimes the challenges will be manageable and other times they may seem overwhelming. Please connect with me or use the resources available to you when you need it at SFU - both academically and to help you take care of your mental health and well-being. Try out the Wellness Wheel at and explore resources on and off campus to support you in being successful in this course and beyond.
