UTM Mental Health Supports
This website provides resources for students looking for mental health supports, in addition to supports for personal safety concerns, and experiences with sexual violence. It provides regional supports based on where the student is located for our most common regions, as well as information for out-of-province and out-of-country students. The resources are predominantly for students in crisis, or those looking for immediate supports. The website focuses on UTM Resources, U of T Tri-Campus Resources, and community resources.
U of T Student Mental Health Resource
This website is a Tri-Campus resource for students looking to improve their mental health, learn ways of coping and find support and services to support their mental health. It features programs, initiatives, and resources both at UofT and in the community.
