The FITA program is currently closed for the summer semester of 2020. This includes May through August inclusively. The FITA program plans to reopen for the fall semester to deliver services virtually in order to promote the health and safety of our students.

The From Intention to Action (FITA) program supports undergraduate and graduate students in the often stressful university experience. We help students to better manage stress and improve their academic performance, by navigating the personal stressors that can often get in the way of school. FIT: Action students meet 1-on-1 with a Coordinator for 1 hour every week for 12 consecutive weeks. Our Coordinators are staff members or Master’s-level interns trained in counselling and psychotherapy.

Often students feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to go. The most common ways we help are: supportive counselling, stress management, coping skills, time management, and learning strategies.
