As Brock University students resume on-campus activities, they can now more easily access the many health resources available to them.
Appointments through Brock’s Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre (SWAC), which includes Student Health Services, Personal Counselling Services and Student Accessibility Services, are available in person and online.
All appointments are conducted by members of the SWAC team, who have each received appropriate training that encompasses understanding of lived experiences and unique medical and other needs of all Brock students, including members of the University’s two-spirit, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer communities; students who are Black, Indigenous and People of Colour; and student sex workers.
To book an appointment with Student Health Services, which can include a health exam, addressing alcohol or drug concerns, or sexually transmitted infection testing, among other services, call 905-688-5550 x3243.
Student Health Services is also offering COVID-19 vaccination clinics, with Moderna vaccines available on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Pfizer vaccines for people who are under 18 years of age on Wednesdays.
Students wishing to access Personal Counselling Services are encouraged to download the My SSP app in the App Store or Google Play for 24-7 chat or text support and to search for the Brock University Counselling program when creating their profile.
Appointments with Personal Counselling Services for students to discuss concerns related to their life at Brock as well as their personal life can be made by calling 1-833-276-2533 (1-833-BROCK33) or 001-416-382-3257 if outside of North America.
Those interested in accessing Student Accessibility Services are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit SWAC’s new students page to access information regarding available services and accommodations.
In addition to the aforementioned services that are immediately available to students, there will also be Wellness Hub peer-to-peer drop-in or virtual sessions beginning the week of Monday, Sept. 13 and a fall series of workshops to support students, with topics including Building Strong Relationships, Growth Mindset, Start your Semester Right, and more.
A full list of services and programs available to students can be found on the SWAC website.
