Counselling services for out-of-country international students

Memorial’s Student Wellness and Counselling Centre (SWCC) is pleased to launch keep.meSAFE, an external counselling service for current international students who live outside Canada and cannot access such services due to jurisdictional practice restrictions. The keep.meSAFE service allows students to connect with a trained, certified counsellor wherever they are in the world through telephone, text, video-conferencing and, when appropriate, in-person sessions.

Memorial international students located outside Canada at this time will be automatically eligible and can access the program directly using the information attached.

Students with questions about the program can contact swccwellness@mun.ca. *The services are offered for a two-month pilot period effective April 1, 2021.
