Community Resources

We support students in reaching their goals and connecting them to appropriate resources. In doing so, our team provides short-term support to individual students and student groups in the following areas:

  • Assistance navigating systems and accessing personal and community resources (i.e. housing, financial) strengthening their ability to advocate for themselves
  • Short-term goal setting and action planning 
  • Developing strategies to cope with difficulties (i.e. social/emotional/academic) 
  • Integrating and engaging within the community

In assisting students develop greater resiliency we encourage you to learn from your past experiences. Think back to a time when you were faced with adversity. How did you cope? Was it effective? What made it effective? Keep adding each piece of learned wisdom to your self-care toolkit.

If you are experiencing difficulty or supporting a student through a difficulty time, please contact our office for consultation and we will assist in bridging you to appropriate resources. Contact us 780-492-3342 or email at cswteam@ualberta.ca.

'How to Help' Guide

We have developed the 'How to Help' guide for the University of Alberta community. This guide is useful for those providing support to individuals on campus and even to those of us who want to improve our helping skills as we support our peers.
