Here at ASUS, we want to assure you that you are not alone. We are here to help connect you with either professional or peer support resources in the Queen’s or Kingston community to help enhance your experience as a student. As students ourselves, we at ASUS recognize the importance of promoting overall healthy well being, self-care practices, destigmatizing mental health/illness and helping provide accessible resources for students. If you, or anyone you know, is seeking additional support of any kind, we encourage you to access the resources below and see what is available for you on campus.
