Counselling Services

    Crandall University is committed to the academic and personal development of all students. Everybody faces difficult times in their lives and we are here to help Crandall students navigate some of the challenges that arise.

    We provide confidential mental health services to undergraduate and graduate students to help foster strong mental health and to help students learn healthy life skills. These services are currently offered through zoom meetings or face to face appointments. Our counsellor can provide assessments, counselling services and/or referrals. We can help students dealing with a variety of needs, such as: depression, anxiety, academic stress, grief, relationships and more.

    Our goal is to help students learn to be the healthiest versions of themselves and to help set them up with skills that will help them throughout their whole life.
