GSA Graduate Student Assistance Program (GSAP)
Established by a referendum passed by graduate students and administered by Homewood Health, GSAP provides confidential counselling services on a broad range of issues including, but not limited to: anxiety, stress, depression, conflict, managing multiple life roles, etc. The GSAP also offers a wealth of health promotion programs and services including nutritional and fitness consultations, legal and financial consultations, and a health and wellness library of articles and e-courses.
Homewood Health's health professionals are registered psychologists or master's-level registered counsellors, chosen for their extensive experience dealing with a variety of psychological and health issues. The counselling provided is solution focused cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and the counsellor and client determine the number of sessions needed to address the issue.
