Round-the-clock mental health supports available to students during exams

As exam season and its related stresses near, Brock University is reminding students of the many mental health supports available to help them navigate challenging days they may encounter along the way.

Mental health counselling and resources can be accessed 24-7 through the My SSP mobile app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Students can also receive urgent/crisis 24-7 telephone counselling by calling 1-833-276-2533 (1-833-BROCK33), while those who are outside of North America can call 001 416 382 3257, for 24-7 telephone support every day of the year.

Sarah Pennisi, Director of Brock’s Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre (SWAC), said the supports are part of a year-round commitment to students’ well-being.

“At Brock University, we care deeply about student wellness and want students to know that there are many different options available to support their mental health during stressful times or events,” she said. “We sincerely invite students to reach out and connect with supports if they need them.”
