Supporting Students


Therapists welcome calls from anyone concerned about a student, whether or not the student is a client at SCC. If you are concerned about a student, please call the Student Counselling Centre (ex. 4616) and ask to speak to a therapist.  While a therapist is ethically and legally unable to discuss the specifics of a client's case without a signed release of information form, therapists at the Student Counselling Centre may be able to offer some general information and guidelines that would typically apply in situations which are similar to those of the student in question.

Outreach and Presentations

As we are able, our staff is happy to make presentations about our service or to present on topics of a psychological nature such as stress management, depression, and healthy relationships. Several of our staff are trained in QPR, a suicide prevention workshop, which we are happy to offer to the campus community or to anyone off-campus who is interested as well. Please contact our office for more information or to arrange a presentation.

PDF of Supporting Students Resource

We encourage staff and faculty to download the Supporting Students Resource, utilizing the table of key resources to refer students to support. For more severe and urgent concerns, you can consult with the Student Counselling Centre or submit a Care Alert to notify the University of Windsor Assessment and Care Team who will follow up with the student to develop a personal care plan.
