Collaborative Mental Health Care
Student Wellness Centre (SWC)
SWC has adopted a shared or collaborative care model for the provision of mental health care for students, building on the model originally developed in Hamilton. This means that SWC counsellors, family doctors, and psychiatrists work together (not in silos) to serve the mental health needs of students, through the use of shared medical records, team meetings, and consultations. This approach improves access for all students to comprehensive mental health care.
