Mental Health & Wellness


Same-day/next-day Counselling Sessions

The Daniels Faculty, in partnership with the U of T Health and Wellness Centre, offers free, confidential counselling services to students enrolled in our undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Many students find it helpful to meet with a counsellor to learn how to manage stress around schedules or exams, relationships, or any unexpected challenge. The Daniels Faculty is in the process of identifying a dedicated on-location counsellor for students.

To book a same-day or next-day appointment, contact the Health and Wellness Centre at 416-978-8030 (select option “5”). Follow-up appointments are booked directly with the counsellor or through Health & Wellness.
