UManitoba opens wellness centre at Fort Garry campus


The University of Manitoba has opened a new Student Wellness Centre (SWC) on its Fort Garry campus. The hub will offer harm reduction and mental health and wellness services, while also increasing awareness of existing resources, such as the UManitoba wellness services and the Health and Wellness and Healthy U supports. It will operate on a drop-in basis, providing students with a space where they can learn about how to maintain their wellbeing while they study, connect with others, and seek support from health and wellness professionals and trained peer educators. The space will also be used for health promotion events and other activities.
