This time of year can be a stressful time for many students. So it’s even more important to take care of your mental health. If you are a current student with us, we’ve created a Mental Health Kit to get you started with some resources on campus.
Please note that this is just a brief list of supports around campus. If you need any assistance, email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to help!

Remember Your Support Networks
Support Networks are groups of people in your life that help you achieve your personal and professional goals. These individuals can be family, friends, or university staff. Take some time to reach out to those you would like to include in your network, and don’t be afraid to ask for support when needed. Tyler Cousin and Stephen Oliver from the IFP are both always happy to meet with students to help them achieve academic and personal success.
Taking breaks is an integral part of studying efficiently, and coping with the stress of university life. Working with an academic advisor can help you learn how many breaks you need, when to take them, and how to return to work when the break is over. If you’re interested in building a personal study plan that compliments your needs, make an appointment with Stephen Oliver, your Program Advisor.
