It’s no secret that student life is challenging—but for some it can be overwhelming.

In 2016, SFU Health & Counselling Services participated in the National College Health Assessment survey, which involved more than 1,000 SFU students. In the survey, 15.7% of students reported being diagnosed or treated by a professional for anxiety, while 12% reported being diagnosed or treated for depression.

That means 1 in every 6 students needs mental health support—but we know there are many others who haven’t asked for help.

Stress can play a large role in the lives of students, and it can sometimes overshadow the many good memories they should be making. That's why—with your help—we are working to support student well-being.

SFU Health & Counselling Services works in collaboration with other campus groups to offer a variety of free programs. These programs help students succeed and ensure they have the best experience at SFU—and you can help them grow.
