The Community Wellness Program offers students the opportunity to meet with a social worker on campus to discuss issues and concerns they may be facing. This service is confidential and free to students at the U of A.
You can drop by our office to have a talk in a private, comfortable and safe space. We are located in HUB Mall, Room 209 or we can arrange to meet at another location.
