Student Wellness Centre

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. 

Healthy U Peer Health Educators hold their office hours within this space - click here to book an appointment or phone 204 474 6740! Please note appointments are also available on a drop-in basis.

Students are invited to visit the lounge area to rest, recharge, connect, and learn.

Office Information and Hours

The SWC is located at Room 162 Extended Education at the University of Manitoba Fort Garry Campus.

On Fort Garry Campus, a short trip from UMSU University Centre down the Curry Place Pedway to 162 Extended Education, UM’s Student Wellness Centre (SWC) is waiting for you — a space to get connected, be well, and stay well. If you enter Extended Education through the tunnels, head straight down the hall, past the route to the Active Living Centre and turn right just before the doors to the bus stop outside. If you are coming from the Active Living Centre, turn left once you’re in Extended Education and follow the signs, turning right just before the doors back out to University Crescent.

Background

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.
