Managing your mental health

UFV Counselling

UFV Counselling Services are available by phone, email, and via a secure virtual platform. Reach out if you are experiencing a personal crisis or if you'd like to receive individual counselling related to anxiety, stress, isolation, grief and loss, or relationship issues.

Peer Resource and Leadership Centre Peer Support Line

The Peer Support Line is a one-on-one audio and chat peer support resource facilitated by trained Peer Leaders through Blackboard Collaborate. Our Peer Leaders employ active listening and knowledge of resources to support their fellow UFV students through their academic, personal, social and wellness needs.

This service is available Mon-Fri from 5 pm-11 pm. You can book an appointment at ufv.ca/prlc/support.

The Government of British Columbia has recently launched Here2Talk, a new mental health counselling and referral service for post-secondary students. The service connects students with mental health support when they need it. Through this program, students currently registered in a B.C. post-secondary institution have access to free, confidential counselling and community referral services, conveniently available by app, phone or online chat, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You can access this service at Here2Talk.ca.
