FITA

From Intention to Action (FITA) is a counselling program run by Brock University, Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre. FITA, developed out of Carleton University, is a structured intervention that is geared towards assisting overwhelmed students cope with stress, study effectively, and maintain a healthy life balance. Within the program, students participate in a psychological assessment which evaluates their personal adjustment, personality, study habits and academic achievement. The assessment also screens for mental health concerns. Students are provided with a feedback session to review the results of the assessment and to develop a recommended plan of action. Subsequently, 12 weekly one-on-one, 1-hour meetings with a counsellor commence.

If you are ready to make positive changes, we can help you realize your potential and build a plan that will contribute to your success.
