Multi-faceted approach to student counselling
NBCC recognizes students are under pressure juggling academic, financial, and life’s challenges. Our counselling and wellbeing services provide a multi-faceted stepped care approach which offers students options to receive support in a variety of ways. From on-campus support groups and individual counselling sessions; to self-directed online resources and NBCC’s Mental Wellbeing App, students have choices to take charge of improving their health and wellbeing!
A growing number of individuals grapple with sleep and mood disorders, anxiety, stress, depression, and for some, more serious mental health issues. These issues often affect a student’s ability to focus and dedicate time to their academic success. Our Career & Wellbeing Counsellors will provide short-term counselling and link you to appropriate supports and services.
We are all in this together, in fact, statistics indicate that 1 in 5 Canadians will be directly affected by a mental health issue; while only 50% will seek help. As members of our NBCC community, we have a responsibility to care for ourselves and each other by creating a nurturing environment where everyone feels supported by a culture of wellbeing. Reach out today for support!
Resources - keeping students connected
NBCC developed a mental wellbeing app that connects students to trusted information about mental health and wellbeing. This app provides access to resources available through NBCC and in your community; as well as other online tools for healthy practice.
Career Transition Services
With so many options, it's easy to feel confused when it comes to determining the right career path for you. People often explore many programs at college before making a final choice in their education. Students occasionally question if a program is the right choice. Maybe you need career counselling to explore industry and employment trends; you’re switching career choices, or joining us from another post-secondary institute, our counsellors will assist with these challenging questions.
If you started any post-secondary program and found it wasn’t the right path, we are here to help you start over with NBCC. Explore the many opportunities and connect with our Career & Wellbeing Counsellors today!
