Health and Wellness Resources

Hello Daniels students,

As move through the month of March, we wanted to remind you of the many health and well-being resources that are available to you. We are available to speak with individually via a scheduled or drop in appointment to help guide you.

Health and Wellness Services

Health and Wellness at the University of Toronto provides a range of health services for your physical and mental health, wellness programs, and information to help support you in achieving your personal and academic goals.

To contact Health and Wellness Services Reception call  416-978-8030, email  info.hwc@utoronto.ca, or visit 214 College Street, Second Floor Toronto, ON M5T 2Z9. For more information visit: https://studentlife.utoronto.ca/department/health-wellness/ or https://studentlife.utoronto.ca/covid-19-health-wellness-faqs/

Single Session Counselling service

Health and Wellness counsellors are available for same-day, single-session counselling on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Single-session counselling provides students with quick access to support for help with issues like exam stress, relationship problems, sadness or nervousness and more. Single-session appointments are for students who want to address a specific concern, whether it is new or longstanding and are often a good fit for students who are uncertain about pursuing ongoing counselling services. Students can access more than one single session appointment, but are encouraged to take some time to implement strategies in-between appointments. The hope is that every student leaving a single-session appointment has an individual plan to work toward change.

Appointments are limited and will be scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. This service is not a route to ongoing therapy and does not replace crisis services. Counsellors will meet with students virtually by secure video conferencing or by phone on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 10 AM to 3 PM (2:00 PM last appointment).

To book an appointment, please call the Health & Wellness Centre at 416-978-8030 (option5).
