  • Contact Health & Counselling and book an appointment with an Access Case Manager who provides a same-day 30 minute appointment.  They will provide mental health support and/or referral to appropriate services and resources.
  • Phone My SSP (Student Support Program) at 1.844.451.9700 and ask to book an appointment with an Indigenous Counsellor. Appointments with an Indigenous counsellor may be via phone or ask about in-person appointment options in the community. You can also download the My SSP App and connect 24/7 with support. All support through My SSP is free and confidential
