[ Music ]>>Hi, everyone. We are back. We are visiting the Student
Health and Wellness team today. You will meet Maura O’Keefe
at the Counselling Centre, Allan MacDonald at the Medical
Centre, and Juannittah Kamera at the Health Promotions Office.>>Hi. Welcome to the Faculty
of Community Services. My name is Maura O’Keefe, and
I’m the clinical coordinator at the Centre for Student
Development and Counselling, also known as the
Counselling Centre. We are located in
the lower level of Jorgenson Hall
in JOR 07C. Starting university can be an
exciting and overwhelming time. Many first-year students can
struggle with the adjustment to university and feel stressed. If that stress is getting in
the way of getting things done or participating in routines
that you normally do, then it’s okay to ask for help. The counselling centre
offers a variety of programs including individual
and group, as well as referral to community services. Please stop by our office
or check out our website for more information
about our programs. Asking for help can
be a difficult thing, but we encourage you
to get connected. The counselling team
is here for you.>>Hello new FCS students. My name Allan MacDonald. I’m the Director of
Student Health and Wellness at Ryerson University. Our Medical Centre is
located here in Kerr Hall at 181 Kerr Hall West. The easiest way to find us is go through the north west
entrance here on Gerrard Street. We’re the first door
on your right. We offer medical services
much like you’d find at your local family
physician’s office. We know when you’re moving
to a new city and starting at a new university, it can
be tough finding your way around campus so if
you’re feeling unwell, please come in and see us. That’s what we’re here for,
and if we can’t help you out we can definitely connect
you to somebody on campus who can or perhaps connect you to somebody here in
downtown Toronto. Welcome to Ryerson.>>Hi FCS students and
welcome to Ryerson. My name is Juannittah,
and I’m the Coordinator of Health Promotion Programs. Our team is comprised of
myself, student staff, and placement students. We strongly believe that healthy
students make better learners and that health and resilience
are major contributors to student academic success. At health promotion programs,
we work to promote the health and well-being of students
through programming and by providing current
and relevant information. For example, the
student’s health assistance and resilience program
more commonly known as SHARP. SHARP is a
peer program that was created to support students
like yourselves to develop life-long skills
for managing your health and well-being, so you can excel in your academic life
or your work life. We’re here for you so
please come in and visit us, and we’ll be happy to
help you any way we can. Welcome to Ryerson, and
welcome to the Faculty of Community Services.>>Thank you so much to
Maura, Allan, and Juannittah for being a part of
FCS Student Connect. [ Music ] [ Silence ]
