  2. No costs. Just drop in, fill out a form or two, and they do a preliminary meeting thing right there and then. Then you book an appointment for a legit counselling session.

  3. It's super easy and very welcoming. As someone who has used these services before I would highly recommend it if you're feeling, for lack of a better term, "funky".

  4. OP here: what if not currently enrolled or not a student? Still no costs?

    1. If you aren't a student or enrolled, you do not have access to on-campus services and don't come here trying to freeload off of those of us who pay. Go to CAMH or some other service if you really need it.

  7. Not OP but I thought counseling services and mental health services were separate.

    1. ^ This. I've used both, mental health services for my diagnosed disorder and counselling services to talk through stressful times in my life. They are very much separate.

      Counselling services you just book an appointment, but mental health services you need to see a physician first to access that department (by recommendation only). It's located on the second floor of Healh Services.
