NSCAD's Mental Health Collective

meets in NSCAD's Wellness Space (Room G227) every Monday at 12 pm for their Mental Health Tea Hour.  It's a stigma-free space to discuss mental health issues with peers, without the fear of being judged. All are welcome.

NSCAD's Peer Support Program

offers one-on-one peer support Monday through Friday from 6 - 8 pm in Room G227, plus additional hours in Room P104 at the PORT Campus. Peer Support is one of the most effective strategies for individuals living with mental illness who are trying to maintain their mental health in a stressful academic environment, and even for students without a diagnosis of mental illness who are encountering less than functional mental health due to the stresses of school, relationships, being away from home, etc…. The Peer Mentors have lived experience with mental illness and are current NSCAD students, putting them in an ideal place to serve as positive examples for students coping with Mental health problems or having difficulty adjusting to life at NSCAD.
