The importance of the program

Lack of social connection is a common theme that contributes to challenges experienced by university students. Students in need of connection feel profound loneliness, isolation, shame and fear of being judged negatively. Similarly, the lack of connection also contributes to staff and faculty’s compromised well-being.

It is not professional counselling support for distressing and crisis situations. In these situations, refer to professionals. In Campus Connected sessions you will learn details about how and where to refer others.

Benefits of being involved with the program

Supporting others benefits the helper. Voluntarily giving help to others protects our overall physiological health and emotional well-being.
