Counselling Services have compiled several additional resources that are available to support your mental wellbeing.
IBPOC Gathering Group
We welcome any Sask Polytech student identifying as Indigenous, Black or Person of Color. The group offers a space to share experiences, to foster community, and to support well being. The group is facilitated by Sask Polytech counsellors, but student input will guide the group.
Mental health and wellness
Please see Sask Polytech's Mental Health and Wellness page for a wide range of resources including upcoming events, links to online information, videos, podcasts, apps and more.
Help reduce your stress by taking time to slow down and be present with what is. Our Mindful Moment videos guide you through moments of self-reflection and mind body connection. We welcome your suggestions for future mindful practices.
Provincial and regional resources
- This province-wide online therapy unit, created by the University of Regina partnered with the Saskatchewan Health Authority, provides free online mental health therapy.
- This free, confidential, 24/7 service connects individuals to human services in the province by telephone, text, or web chat, plus a searchable website with over 5,000 listings of social, community, non-clinical health, and government services across the province.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic Student Association (SPSA)
The Saskatchewan Polytechnic Students' Association also offers mental wellbeing services via Mywellness—an Online Video Counselling Service provided by the SPSA Health and Dental Plan that offers confidential counselling. Mywellness is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a multitude of languages. To access the services provided, visit www.mywellnessplan.ca and select your school from the drop down menu.
