Today is #BellLetsTalk Day – a day encouraging us all to join the conversation and help end the stigma surrounding mental health illness. Here at U of G, we recognize that even the most well-rounded students need support, whether that be academically, physically, mentally, or emotionally.
In support of #BellLetsTalk, we’re sharing the supports offered to students on campus as well as additional resources available to anyone who needs support.
