Week 1- Making the Transition

Meet some of the SHW Counselling team and share your experiences coming to study at Lakehead, discuss coping strategies and learn more about your fellow Thunderwolves

Week 2- Creating Your Self-Care Plan

Within this workshop students will be guided through the process of evaluating their current coping strategies, learning about the various categories of self-care, and developing a plan to better support themselves when faced with isolation, loneliness, life transitions and stress. This workshop is interactive and will allow for students to share their self-care ideas with other students.

Week 3- Managing Stress Mindfully

Whenever there is change there is uncertainty and with uncertainty comes stress. In this session, SHW counsellor Holly will offer mindfulness-based exercises that may help you navigate stress and uncertainty by bringing a kind loving awareness to your present moment experience. 

Week 4- Staying Well

Learn about all the resources available to help you stay well.  In this session, we will introduce you to all the supports available to you both on and off-campus to help you take care of your well-being.
