Memorial issues statement on wellness and counselling centre, says no risk of closure


Memorial University has issued a statement responding to the recent public discussion about the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre (SWCC). Memorial states that the centre “is not at risk of closure or decreased services,” and that the SWCC has reported no waitlist for initial appointments for mental health services. The university asserts that the faculty complement to the SWCC has remained stable for the past decade and that the accredited Doctoral Residency in Professional Psychology Program is going through the re-accreditation process. “We are committed to adequately resourcing the SWCC in order to provide a high-level and wide range of services for our students,” states Memorial.
