Mental Health banner
Mental Health can be defined as “the capacity to feel, think and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and deal with the challenges we face.”  (Public Health Agency of Canada)

We have a campus population of over 35,000 people between Western's students, staff and faculty combined, and the prevalence of mental health issues is likely higher than we know. Wellness in mind, body, and spirit are essential to academic success and job performance.  The most important things you can do the maintain good mental health,  are to pay attention to sleep, exercise and nutrition.

If you are concerned about yourself,  you are not alone.  Western offers free counselling services and several on campus mental health resources; including one for international students.  If you hear a friend talk of feeling overwhelmed PLEASE don’t ignore it - listen and encourage them to talk to someone who can help.
