In December 2015 The Ryersonian, Ryerson’s Student Newspaper, released an article about the wait times for counseling. We cannot treat mental illness like a check up appointment, this issue is time sensitive, and longer wait times could put student’s well-being in danger.
As a growing number of students line up for mental health services, Ontario university counselling centres look for more resources and alternative care models to mitigate wait times. How much longer can students wait for help?
