Drop-In HCS Advising

Life can be stressful and overwhelming. You don't have to struggle alone.

Whether you're feeling isolated and lonely, or are unsure how to manage a personal problem or situation - visit our drop-in advising hours and chat with us. Balancing life during these uncertain times can be hard. HCS Drop-in Advising is here so you can speak with an Access Case Manager one-on-one and talk about how Health & Counselling can support you best - whether it's through regular counselling, groups, workshops or referrals. 

Drop-in HCS Advising is a virtual space for you to feel heard and supported by an Access Case Manager, and where you can figure out your next steps together.

No appointment is required; simply click on the Zoom links below during the daily drop-in hours. Each session is approximately 30 minutes per student. Please note: drop-ins are not anonymous and client information will be collected for Health & Counselling’s electronic health records.

Who are the Access Case Managers?

Deborah Fung

Deborah is a Clinical Counsellor and passionate about supporting students wherever they're at in their personal mental health journey.  Her previous roles at SFU involved academic advising and program planning for new students, which fostered her appreciation for the variety of unique needs across a diverse student population.  As an Access Case Manager, Deborah is curious to learn about the details of your individual concerns so that she can connect you with the best fit resource to support you.

Drop-in spots are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. To secure your spot, we encourage you to join the Zoom meeting during the sign-in period, which starts 30 minutes before the drop-in hours begin. We encourage you to sign-in earlier as there will more likely be spots available. During the sign-in period, an access case manager will let you know approximately what time you will be seen. It is not necessary to join during the sign-in period; if you join after the first drop-in has started, the access case manager will let you know if they are with another student and how long you may need to wait. 

In the event that you cannot secure a drop-in spot, we encourage you to try again later or on the next day as Drop-In HCS Advising is offered daily. We also have LiveChat that you can use to get in touch with one of our Access Case Managers. Additionally, there is the support option of booking an appointment with one of our counsellors by calling the front desk at 778-782-4615.
