Residence Counselling and Wellness is a satellite office of Health and Counselling Services open exclusively to Carleton students living in residence. We are located in 131 Renfrew Building (on the main floor, close to the rear entrance).

In addition to our three licensed counsellors, we work with housing staff to run events and activities in the Wellness Space and are home to the Mental Health Champions.

Mental Health Champions

Residence Counselling also supports the Mental Health Champions residence volunteer program. Throughout the year, the Mental Health Champions host various activities around campus on the topic of coping, resilience, and mental well-being.

Getting Involved

Do you want to create more happiness and well-being in the world? Are you interested in getting more involved in the residence community?

The Mental Health Champions are a diverse group of Carleton students who challenge themselves and those around them to learn and spread principles of positive psychology and wellness. All that is required to volunteer is a genuine interest in helping and in developing your qualities of empathy, leadership and interpersonal skills.
