COVID-19: Temporary changes to Mental Health Services
The health and safety of our students is our highest priority. In this challenging time, we will continue to provide counselling and peer support services to our students the best and safest way we can. In light of the current closure of our campuses, we have implemented the following temporary changes:
We are not seeing students in person. Counselling and peer support are operating, but you will not be able to walk into our offices or The Breathing Space.
Appointments will take place by telephone only. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org from your Conestoga student email to arrange an appointment.
- Please include your student ID number, telephone number and the concern you are contacting us about.
- When you receive a call from our counselling team it may be from a blocked number.
- If you need to cancel a scheduled appointment you must email
- Counselling reception staff are currently only available by email
Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Emails recceived outside of these times will be responded to as soon as possible.
- Conestoga's counsellors can only provide service to students who are currently registered full-time and are still residing in Ontario.
Good2Talk is another free mental health resource available to all Ontario post-secondary students that you can access as an alternative, or if you need support outside of our regular operating hours.
