Help change lives for the better

A recent survey of over 33,000 students at 34 Canadian universities revealed deeply concerning statistics regarding the mental health of young adults.

Of those surveyed, 89% of students said they were overwhelmed by everything they had to do and 56% reported that they felt overpowering anxiety.

In an effort to address this urgent issue, the Psychology Clinic (part of the Clinical Psychology Program) launched the Walk-In Wellness Clinic on the UBC Okanagan Campus in November 2018. The clinic provides a low-barrier walk-in mental health service for students, staff, faculty and the greater BC community. To date, the Walk-In Wellness Clinic has provided over 350 appointments for students and community members, providing immediate psychological intervention, and as necessary, arranging for ongoing mental health supports.

Your gift will help the clinic to continue providing low-barrier access to mental services with a registered psychologist, provide innovative training opportunities for doctoral students, and allow clients/students to take advantage of cutting edge adaptive online mental initiatives.
