If any of the above describe you, you may benefit from seeking some support.

Campus and community supports can help you find connections and make changes!

College can be a time of great stress. At Counselling Services, we can help you with the demands of student life, promoting wellness, and building skills for lifelong success.

Counselling

A Counsellor brings training and skills to assist you in making sense of the problems you are experiencing, and works with you to develop preferred ways of living.

Counselling is free to all full- and part-time registered Yukon College students. Students may self-refer or can be referred by a College staff member.

Counselling is voluntary and you may stop at any time.

Pet Therapy

We have two resident therapy dogs, Magnus and Allegra. The dogs visit with students around the campus to promote positive mental wellness and stress relief. Magnus and Allegra are also available to attend personal counselling sessions – students can request to have an appointment when one of the dogs are in.

Confidentiality

All of the information you share with us is completely confidential. No information can be accessed by College administrators, instructors, outside agencies or others unless you choose to sign a release. You’re in control.
