Dear staff and faculty:
Did you know that students have access to free, confidential counselling services 24/7, 365 days a year?
They will be connected with a trained counsellor immediately, and get support on anything from relationships to family care, depression, anxiety, stress, conflicts, cultural adjustment, grief, gender identity, addiction, and more.
Empower Me also offers a full suite of academic life services, such as life coaching, financial planning, and nutritional counselling. Students can choose whether they want to receive support in person, by telephone, video-counselling, or e-counselling.
All counsellors hold at minimum a Master’s degree in social work, psychology, or a related counselling field. All counsellors must also have a membership in good standing with their respective professional boards.

*Students who have opted out are still entitled to a single session. Spouses and/or dependents may also be eligible to access this service.
