Mental health is an essential component of your overall wellness. If you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, or want to reach out and be proactive about your mental health, you can talk to us. We are here for you. 

The Wellness and Psychological Services office provides all MacEwan students with free, confidential, short-term individual and group counselling, and case management. We also host events, workshops and other activities. We support faculty and staff by answering their questions about wellness supports.  

Our team consists of registered psychologists, registered provisional psychologists, clinical social workers, masters-level counselling and clinical social work practicum students, a registered nurse and a peer health education team. Our goal is to help you gain the skills and confidence you need to reach your personal, academic and career potential.
