Student Wellness Service
The Student Wellness Service (SWS) provides medical and counselling services to students at primary healthcare level. The service is there to help you make healthy lifestyle choices about nutrition, alcohol, safe sex, relationships, and stress management, among others – all in support of academic success.
The SWS offers:
SWS gives you easy access to a clinical nurse practitioner, psychologist, social worker, counsellors and peer educators via their online platform.
