Student Health & Wellness Centre Walk-In Counselling
WHAT IS IT?
Student Health and Wellness encompasses all health services available to Dalhousie students, including counselling and psychological services.
HOW WILL IT HELP?
Students have access to walk-in counselling services in order to address their mental health and wellness needs.
Delivering counselling services through a walk-in model not only reduces the wait lists for individual therapy, but it allows students to be seen when their problems are imminent. Walk-in counselling encourages early intervention of distress, which has shown to be important to reduce the impact of potential debilitating factors associated with poor mental health or mental illness.
Walk-in counselling is also beneficial for those who may only need a single counselling session when they’re feeling distressed.
The first walk-in session also acts as an intake session. The purpose of this 30-50 minute session is to:
- Screen & assess your situation
- Discuss your options
- Suggest strategies for coping with immediate issues
- Create a wellness plan
HOW DO I ACCESS IT?
Walk-in counselling appointments are available daily on the 2nd floor, LeMarchant clinic (1246 LeMarchant Street).
Simply walk in, or call ahead (902-494-2171) to determine availability of walk-in appointments.
Clinic hours can be found here.
