Our Students:

New and improved mental health and wellness care introduced at St. Lawrence College

SLC students will now be able to access new and expanded mental health services on its Kingston, Brockville, and Cornwall campuses, promoting well-being, and encouraging those seeking help to receive the supports they need.  

Student Wellness & Accessibility (formerly known as Counselling & AccessAbility Services) will provide a wide range of services aligned with individual mental health needs, resulting in shorter wait times to receive care, and increased access to specialized services. 

Services include individual short-term counselling, increased walk-in availability, educational workshops and peer group engagement, and group therapy interventions. The introduction of a new app, Therapy Assistance Online (TAO), will provide students with an opportunity to learn wellness strategies through self-guided learning or a therapy-assisted approach. The app provides access to tools and resources on interpersonal relationships, stress, relaxation, problem solving, and mindfulness. 

“The Student Wellness & Accessibility refreshed identity and services program was created with the new value of Belonging at top-of-mind. In addition to improving access to services, our goal is to reduce stigma that can be associated with mental health and disability, while improving student well-being, and creating a safe, welcoming, barrier-free environment for students,” said Caryn Langstaff, Associate Director, Student Wellness & Accessibility, SLC.

SLC is expanding on-campus parking in Kingston 

Parking SignSt. Lawrence College has begun a project to expand on-campus parking. Increased parking will help reduce on-street parking in the residential areas neighbouring our campus, and SLC has experienced higher demand for parking in recent years. The specific project will expand the large circular lot (P1) and will create a new parking lot along the campus road.
