Importance of mental health

Why does FGS care about mental health

Asking students about their mental health is important

We learned that the majority of students are struggling with their mental health. Discovering what exactly is causing this will help us figure out how best to improve the student experience.

Student Resources

If you need after-hours mental health support or are experiencing a current mental health crisis, you can access 24/7 support.

The Campus Mental Health Strategy is a bold commitment to the importance of mental health and well-being of our university family.

The U of C Mental Health Pros (mhp) is a club on the University of Calgary campus founded in the summer of 2020. It was built on the belief that no one understands mental illnesses like people who have lived with them themselves. And that with such personal experiences, people who have lived with mental illnesses are especially well suited to support others living with the illness they have and to educate the public on their disorders. Hence, we excitedly set forward to fulfill the vision below.​

The SU Campus Food Bank, administered through SU Volunteer Services, provides a  seven day emergency food relief service to the campus community. This relief is provided through nutritionally sound hampers in accordance with the Canada Food Guide along with information to clients regarding resources available on and off-campus.

Complete these mandatory checklists within the first two months of working with your supervisor and submit them to your graduate program administrator. 

Refer back to them regularly to stay on track and to maintain a healthy and productive student-supervisor relationship.
