Student Health and Wellness

Student Health and Wellness
University of Toronto and the Faculty of Medicine is committed to ensuring that our students are supported to academically thrive while engaged in their graduate training. The university has established a framework on how to approach mental health among our student population.

Over the summer months of July 2019 – August 2019, we encourage students to access Health and Wellness counsellors in one of the following options:

1)  Health and Wellness via School of Graduate Studies
All full-time and part-time students can call the Health & Wellness Centre to ask questions or to book/reschedule an appointment.  You are welcome to drop in or call; contact information below

Other resources students can access:

1) Health and Wellness via School of Graduate Studies
The School of Graduate Studies has developed an excellent Health and Wellness website that includes a directory of resources by campus, category (academic support, accessibility, health and dental, mental health, safety, international students, faith and spirituality, family and recreational) and language/accessibility. Please visit the Health and Wellness section of the SGS website by clicking here.

2) Health and Wellness Workshops
You may also want to access other resources, such as workshops that are offered through the Office of Student Life. Topics include better coping skills, mindfulness, grief support groups, sexual health information, suicide alertness training, better sleeping. For details, eligibility and issues about the confidentiality of your attendance at these workshops, please click here.

3) Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre

If you are a current grad student or postdoctoral fellow at UTM, UTSC or UTSG you are welcome to connect confidentially with one of our trained G2G Peer Advisors (G2G=grad-to-grad) to talk about options and strategies for addressing a concern and university supports and resources. G2G do not intervene or advocate – they listen and can help you to navigate your own way forward. If you are a faculty or staff member you can refer students to the G2G Peer Advisors and/or contact the CRC directly to discuss early and effective conflict resolution strategies and opportunities for skills development and training for your department.

4) What to do in an emergency?
If you are in need of immediate medical attention, go to the nearest hospital emergency department, or call 911.

Although our services and the Health & Wellness Centre is closed evenings, weekends and all Statutory Holidays, there are other local walk-in clinics that students can access. Please click here and scroll down the page for more information.
