Health & Wellness

Western graduate students have several options for taking care of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. They can access medical services through our Health & Wellness Services, mental health support through our Mental Health Team, and utilize the wide array of recreational programs and facilities on campus.

Graduate students can also attend Wellness & Equity Education programming to learn more about how to contribute to the development of a more supportive, inclusive and thriving campus that empowers all students to achieve their full potential. Part of our vision is to ensure that students have access to support and resources that can help them thrive throughout their time at Western. Below is a collection of information, resources, and education/training programs that we offer to support our prioritization of gender-based violence prevention, wellness and well-being, equity and inclusion, and the growth and development of all students’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
