The Student Counselling Centre at the University of Windsor provides free, confidential counselling to registered students as well as consultation and referral services for University of Windsor faculty and staff.
Services are provided by Psychologists, Registered Therapists, a Registered Nurse, and Master's-level graduate students.
University of Windsor's role in supporting students with serious ongoing mental health issues:
The University of Windsor is an institution of higher learning committed to the academic success of its students. We offer support programs to help students who may experience academic challenges caused by personal, physical or emotional difficulties. The University is able to offer short-term counselling and therapy services to students. Students in crisis will also be provided support and counselling as needed.
If a student has a need for long-term counselling support or specialized mental health services, the University may provide referrals to assist the student in accessing resources in the community. Students who require access to those services should contact The Student Counselling Centre to discuss referral options.
President Alan Wildeman has announced the launch of a new webpage that provides information on dealing with sexual assault and sexual misconduct: http://www.uwindsor.ca/sexual-assault/
“The University of Windsor seeks to be a learning, living and working environment where all students, faculty and staff feel safe and respected. No one should be a victim of any forms of harassment, or be subjected to any unwanted actions, including illegal actions, that compromise safety, dignity, or human rights,” says Dr. Wildeman.
“Sexual harassment and sexual violence are taken very seriously. On this web page we provide information about what someone can do if they are a victim of sexual assault, or a colleague or friend of someone who has been assaulted. We also summarize programs currently in place to provide education and training for the prevention of sexual assault. Among the programs designed to promote awareness and prevention is the Bystander Initiative, which offers training to students to help them learn how to identify and intervene in situations where sexual assault can occur. With respect to policies, the University’s current policies related to behavior and conduct, which can include sexual assault, are summarized. A stand-alone policy specifically focused on sexual assault is currently being developed.
"It is the responsibility of everyone to contribute to the University of Windsor being a place where harassment of any form is unequivocally discouraged. We will continue to engage students, faculty and staff in collective efforts to have a safe campus.”
