Everyone plays an important role in supporting student mental health and wellness, and faculty or staff members are often the first to notice a student might be struggling or in distress.
In an effort to support faculty and staff, the Wellness Outreach Office has created a webpage listing resources which can be used any time through the semester as a reminder for students what supports are available.
- 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.
In addition to the resources, the Student Counselling Centre remains open for virtual appointments, continues to host regular Wellness Groups, and has recently introduced drop-in support groups for UWindsor students.
Currently there are two virtual drop-in support groups offered every week: the COVID Cares Conversations on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and an LGBTQ+ Drop-In Group every Tuesday and Thursday. At this time, these drop-in sessions are being under-utilized, so if you are aware of any students who are struggling, please encourage them to seek help. These group drop-in sessions may be an easy way for students to gain access to support.
