Supporting Mental Health
Graduate school can be a challenging and intense experience. Dalhousie provides a variety of health and wellness supports and resources to help you maintain your well-being and to respond if difficulties emerge. Peer support opportunities, online mental health support, same day counselling, and appointments with physicians, nurses and social workers are available. As a Dalhousie student, you also have access to Good2Talk (1-833-292-3698), a confidential helpline available 24/7/365 if you need mental health, addictions or well-being support.
Group counselling sessions
Among the group counselling sessions offered by Dalhousie Student Health & Wellness is a weekly online drop-in support group just for graduate students. Led by Drs. Susan Lavoie and Heather Patterson, these sessions navigate the unique challenges of being a graduate student. Educational components on the topic of imposter syndrome, procrastination, school/life balance and supervisory relationships, among others, will be included. This is an opportunity to connect with others and learn skills related to managing stress.
Sessions will take place on Tuesdays from 12:05 to 12:50 p.m. starting September 7. Visit the Student Health & Wellness website to register.
