What's on your mind?
UBC SAP provides free, 24/7 personal counselling and life coaching for all UBC students. Services are available by phone, video, face to face (where available), e-counselling and in multiple languages. Also included are Aspiria’s AWARE Mindfulness Program and Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (cCBT) for those who prefer self-guided options. UBC SAP can help you with a wide range of concerns to support your mental, emotional, physical, and financial health.
If you call the hotline, tell them you are a UBC MEDICAL STUDENT calling through PHP. PHP outsources its counselling to certified accredited counselling psychologists and they don’t treat UBC students unless they are in the medical program so it’s important to make that distinction when you call.
UBC's guide to mental health resources can quickly direct you different types of support you may need. Whether you are looking for peer support, professional help or an up to date list of phone hotlines check out their website for a variety of different resources offered to UBC students.
