Thrive Thursday Walk in Wellness Clinic

A recent survey of over 33,000 students at 34 Canadian universities revealed deeply concerning statistics regarding the mental health of young adults. 89 percent of students said they were overwhelmed by everything they had to do; 56 percent reported they felt overpowering anxiety; 50 percent reported experiencing hopelessness; 20 percent reported mental-health issues; and 10 percent of young adults have seriously considered suicide.

 

In an effort to begin addressing this urgent issue, the psychology clinic (a part of the clinical psychology program) launched the Thrive on Thursdays Walk-In Well-Being Clinic on the UBC Okanagan Campus in November of 2018. The clinic provides a barrier-free walk-in mental health service for students, staff and faculty. It is also opening the doors to the wider community, giving clinical PhD students valuable training experience learning directly from the registered clinical psychologists.

 

Your gift on Giving Day will help the clinic to add weekly didactic and open support groups on topics such as self-compassion, mindfulness, social anxiety, self-care, depression, anxiety, and social media hygiene.
