Are you unsure about where to start with finding the help you want or need? We can help to navigate the often confusing and inaccessible systems that prevent people from getting service. Whether it’s on or off campus, the Wellness Centre staff are compiling York University and GTA services to better serve you in a time of confusion.

Whether it’s finding a local shelter, or directing you to the on campus Food Support Centre; whether it’s petitioning your final mark or seeking support for addiction, we can find the resources best suited to your identity and experience.

If you would like to seek out resources on your own, you can check out some of the services we have found helpful in the past at our RESOURCES page.
