As a reminder, support is available to our Schulich community to help you have continual open dialogue about events that may be troubling – whether beyond the classroom or close to home and affecting your day-to-day life.
Here are some resources, new and old, to help you find your way to a healthier frame of mind.
WellTrack is a self-guided interactive therapy app. It allows you to monitor your mood, seek help when you need it, and learn relaxation techniques. Each user takes a brief survey to identify their needs and is then provided with a customized course of therapy. Simply visit yorku.welltrack.com/register to sign up with your @my.yorku.ca e-mail. Don’t have one? You can still sign up to use the tool using the access code YORK.
Big White Wall is a free online mental health and wellbeing service offering self-guided programs and creative outlets that includes a space to express, connect, learn and remain anonymous.
#YIFeel is a mental health awareness campaign for international students at York University. This student-centric and multi-media campaign features video, blogs and a photo series to encourage expression and dialogue. Its goal is to represent students’ unique stories while also understanding cultural differences and needs when approaching the topic of mental health.
Good2Talk is a free, confidential and anonymous helpline where you can access professional counseling and referrals in support of mental health, recovery and well-being. The helpline is available to all post-secondary students in Ontario, 24 hours a day.

We encourage you to participate in the conversations taking place on and off campus, and to prioritize the types of self care and dialogue that are helpful to you personally.
