As of Fall 2017, there has begun a structural integration of Counselling and Mental Health Services. In order to optimize service delivery to students, all clinicians have become one unit under the name Counselling Services and all psychiatrists have formed a new unit called Psychiatric Services. You can learn more about the restructuring and how services have been affected online.MCGILL COUNSELLING SERVICE
The McGill Counselling Service provides one-on-one short-term counselling to individuals dealing with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues and academic and vocational challenges. Trained and experienced in dealing with the unique difficulties encountered by university students, their professional staff works with each client to alleviate distress, promote self-understanding and develop effective solutions to the obstacles impeding their growth and success. In addition to their regular counselling services they also offer vocational counselling and testing, crisis support, and the opportunity for students to participate in a number of workshops and groups each semester. They also act as a resource for parents, faculty and staff who have concerns about issues that may be affecting their loved ones or students.
Psychiatric Services is available to all full and part-time McGill students who have been referred by a family doctor or another physician and paid Student Services fees. The information shared in Psychiatric Services is strictly confidential and is released only with the student’s written permission or if required by law, as in the case of child abuse or the immediate threat of harm to self or others.
Safety Appointments (Urgent Care) Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
