Mental Health & Counselling

Anxiety, loneliness, anger, sadness. Feeling homesick, disconnected or just not like yourself. Mental and emotional health can be affected by anything at anytime. Let us help you manage and overcome these challenges in a positive and healthy way.

MacEwan University provides free, confidential mental health services to all students. If we aren’t able to help you, we can connect you with someone who can.

Wellness and Psychological Services

If you are struggling with personal or academic stress and need someone to talk to, we can support you with free, professional, confidential counselling. Students enrolled in one or more credit courses can meet to discuss health and wellness concerns. The first step is to attend an Initial Consultation (IC).

Stress-busting dogs

Pets reduce stress. We all know it, and the Pets Assisting with Student Success (PAWSS) program is doing something about it. When he was a MacEwan student, Dejan would visit the PAWSS dogs during exam week; now his pup Ajax is a part of the program.
