 What's on your mind? 


Empower Me allows students to connect with qualified counsellors, consultants, and life coaches. No issue is too big or too small! You don't need to be in crisis to take advantage of this service and you will get support for issues of any kind. The service is available 24/7 throughout the year, and it is confidential, multilingual, and gender and faith inclusive.


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.


Crisis Support

24/7 Walk-In

(no Dr's referral needed)

ACC can help during non-life threatening mental health and/or substance abuse issues!
