Student Assistant Centre (SAC)

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic may have an impact on your mental health. It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry in these uncertain times. We want our students to know that resources are available if you need a little extra support.   

Please know that our school based counselling team is available for our students to continue to connect with. For students to access our counselling staff, please continue to use the same procedures as in the past.
