Residents have access to a counselling service provided by the School of Medicine and Queen’s Student Wellness Services (SWS). The SWS is now offering same, or next day, appointments. These services are provided at arm’s length from the School of Medicine for the purposes of maintaining anonymity and confidentiality.
Therapy / counselling is available free of charge. Additionally, sessions are also available virtually or via phone for those who are unable to attend sessions in person. One initial face-to -face session is often preferable prior to scheduling these alternatives. For those who may prefer a self-help approach, the following self-help workbooks are free and accessible online: http://www.queensu.ca/hcds/workbook.php.
