We have many services and resources in place to help you understand, manage and improve your mental health and wellness while at university. The best place to start is to check out our Wellness Services Navigator. This anonymous site is designed to help find you available mental health and wellness resources.
Magda Georgescu is a counsellor with Carleton’s Health and Counselling Services who is focused on helping graduate students. To make an appointment with Magda, please call the office at 613-520-6674. Once you call, you will speak with a Patient Care Coordinator who will send you an intake and consent form that needs to be completed before speaking with an Intake Counsellor. This intake session can also take place in person at the clinic, if that is your preference, and then you will be able to meet with Magda.
Another good tool to check out is our Resource Guide. This guide is meant to be flexible and offer support and guidance in tandem with the resources mentioned above.
Members of the Carleton community who are concerned about a student can submit a Care Report to document their concern and solicit feedback and/or follow-up, if necessary. The Care and Support team in Wellness Services monitors Care Report submissions daily and will follow-up as appropriate. For more information, please visit the Wellness Website.
