The return of the student population to campus at the start of a new school year in the fall is always accompanied by a fever that is transmitted to everyone there. Classes have just started, soon the leaves will be turning red and the nights are getting cooler.
The campus is like a small town and provides several services. Here are some resources, tips and tools to support you and enable you to support the students you meet:
Mental and physical health
Any change brings its share of positive or negative emotions. The Staff and Family Assistance Program offers mental health support to faculty and staff available 24/7 at 1-844-880-9142.
The new Student Health and Wellness Center offers wellness services focused on prevention, physical and mental health, and wellness promotion. This Center is for the University of Ottawa and Saint Paul University student community only.
