We know that supporting student’s health and wellbeing contributes significantly to academic success.
The Student Wellness Centre (SWC) is open on a drop-in basis and will provide an opportunity for students with an interest in health and wellness to connect with each other. Health and wellness professionals and trained peer educators will be available for consultation and support (on a drop in and appointment basis) and the space will also host health and wellness preventive and promotional initiatives.

UM was one of 10 successful applicants to receive $100,000 in funding from Bell Let’s Talk for our project “Student Wellness Centre” – a resource hub for a range of harm reduction and mental health and wellness services, including professional consultation and peer support.
The SWC is an inclusive space for students to learn skills to actively engage in and maintain their wellbeing throughout their time in university. This space will work to increase awareness of UM’s existing wellness services as well as enhance current Health and Wellness and Healthy U supports. Moving ahead with the student-led request for an inclusive space to connect, learn, grow, and enhance mental health and wellbeing, the SWC will utilize a best practice peer health education model and consider a stepped care and holistic health approach.
Aligning with both the Post-Secondary Standard for Student Mental Health and the UM’s commitment to improving its mental health services, the SWC is dedicated to fostering community-building and engagement in varied wellness practices.
