To further support faculty and staff in their efforts to support students in distress, the Wellness Outreach Office has created a webpage listing resources which can be used within first classes, orientations, and anytime through the semester as a reminder for students of the available supports.
- an infographic on how to have a supportive conversation about any concerns,
- Blackboard posts and PowerPoint slides containing wellness resources,
- posters to highlight available supports, and
- links for further reading.
A new resource to highlight in orientations and classrooms this year is the My Student Support Program (MySSP).
The University of Windsor and UWSA have partnered to provide this program which offers 24/7 counselling services via call or live-chat (text) to all UWindsor students, including multicultural services for international students and those on exchange.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to incorporate a one-slide MySSP PowerPoint into any in-class presentation to highlight the key information on this new program to their students. For more information on MySSP, visit the website www.uwindsor.ca/MySSP.
