    The university offers counselling services.  Students can access counselling services through the Student Development Centre:  or through Student Health Services in UCC Rm. 11 (or call 519-661-3771).

    Good2talk from the creators of Kids Help Phone has the same idea as Kids Help Phone but is specifically geared to post-secondary students.  Trained counsellors answer calls 24/7.  This is a toll-free number: 1-866-925-5454.

    Another new tool designed for post-secondary students is the Healthy Mind app.  It is another tool to help cope with stress on and off campus.

    Living Well @ Western is a new program that promotes student (staff and faculty) health and wellness.  They may advertise different wellness activities each week from yoga to meditation.

    The Western Recreation Centre is a good place to work off stress.  Drop in or sign up for intramurals, clubs or a class.  Registration usually opens and closes very quickly upon start of the term.
