Counselling and Student Well-Being

During this time of extra precautions regarding the COVID-19 virus, we are now offering services online only.

This is a difficult time for many, so please reach out to us when you need support.

For more information around the College’s response to COVID, visit our Student FAQ page.

As a student, you may experience a range of mental health issues that may result in significant barriers to achieving your personal and academic goals. George Brown’s Counselling and Student Well-being Services offers a wide range of free and confidential services and programs that may be able to assist you. Let our professional counselling staff support you in learning to solve problems and develop ways to attain your goals – in your education and in your life.

  • Counselling is free and confidential, available for currently registered George Brown College students.
  • You’re welcome to explore any academic and non-academic issues because they all affect your success.
  • The counselling office provides responsive services – same-day appointments are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • Workshops and counselling groups help you to get more from your education and are free to all registered students.
  • We can arrange ongoing support with a community referral if short-term counselling cannot address your concern.
