We also offer our support to all students, staff, faculty, and community members at the University of Calgary who are affected by this event.
Anyone at the U of A needing assistance or counselling during this time is encouraged to contact the University Wellness Service’s Mental Health Centre. The Mental Health Centre can be reached at 780-492-5205.
