The Student Union Building on Studley campus, located kitty-corner to the hot mess that is the Killam Library, houses many things which improve student life. Besides snacks and caffeine, you can find Dalhousie Counselling and Psychological Services, located on the fourth floor.
University life can be tough enough without added stress crowding your brain. It’s important to know that if you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone. Approximately 20 per cent of people in Canada are affected by mental illness, and talking to someone doesn’t mean you’re damaged or weak—it means you’re smart and proactive for taking care of your health.
While it’s hard to balance schoolwork on top of negative feelings, taking the time to talk to someone external to the situation can be beneficial for anyone.
If there’s something weighing heavily on you, reach out—there’s always someone to lend an ear.
