Book an Appointment

Your first appointment will be an Intake Assessment with our Mental Health Nurse. When booking this appointment online, you can choose a Mental Health Intake appointment if you’re seeking support for your mental health. The Nurse will speak with you privately, to get information about your mental health concern and she will then direct you to the right service after carefully listening and evaluating your mental health needs. She will then book you an appointment with one or more of the following professionals at the Health & Counselling Centre: Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Therapist, or a specialized Nurse, and will also recommend other university supports, as well as community-based and online resources that may be helpful.
