College Years can be very stressful for students as they have to face challenges of academic life in addition to confronting career decisions, learning to integrate into a large and diverse student population and coping with stress of a new environment. Additionally, some young adult students are living in student accommodations away from their families and are developing personal identity while undergoing the maturation process from adolescence to adulthood. During such a difficult and transitional time students may show signs of distress that affects their performance in the academic, social, psychological and physiological spheres of life.

Faculty and staff are in a unique position to identify students in distress and help them access the resources available needed to gain skills and cope with demands of college life. In addition to the support you provide, there are also professional support services available to students on campus through Counselling and Wellness Center (CWC)
