Group to help students reconnect with campus life

It’s normal to feel nervous about coming to campus after so many months of uncertainty and remote learning.

Student Health, Counselling and Wellness Services is offering an eight-week return to campus wellness group for students who would like to talk through how they’re feeling, connect with others, learn new skills for soothing worries, and find balance in the midst of ongoing change.

In the “Be Here, Be Present” group, you will have the opportunity to:

  • connect with other students and make new friends;
  • find comfort in community and reduce feelings of isolation;
  • explore how to worry less and engage more with the present moment; and
  • build new habits to support your well-being and care for yourself.

Based in acceptance and commitment therapy, the group will meet Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. starting Sept. 22 in room 240, CAW Student Centre.

Registration is required; email or call 519-253-3000, ext. 4616, to sign up.
