Counselling centre available to support student mental health

Reaching out for help isn’t a sign of weakness, but of strength, says Mohsan Beg, executive director of the Student Counselling Centre.

The centre offers a range of supports for mental health and wellness, from informal drop-in groups to individual therapy.

“We are a professional staff of licensed mental health practitioners,” Dr. Beg says. “Just like you would go to a medical professional to help you heal if you had a broken bone, we are here to help you heal when you need it.”

The most rewarding part of filming her short documentary Jenny’s Vision is the thought that its message of hope could change someone’s life, says Maria Belenkova-Buford.

A film student, she tells the story of an artist with a visual disability.

“Jenny has some challenges she had to overcome,” says Belenkova-Buford. “My film shows how you can still create while having a major impairment.”
