The Health and Wellness Centre offers registered UofT students the same services as a family doctor’s office and more, including comprehensive medical care, travel education, immunization, counseling, and referrals. The multidisciplinary health team includes family physicians, registered nurses, a dietitian, support staff and a lab technician. The Health Service is a designated Health Canada Travel Medicine Clinic offering travel immunization and education programs.
To help better assist our students going through personal challenges, Faculty of Information students are able to access our on-location wellness counsellor, Tracey Doyle, to help clarify issues, better understand your emotions, relationships and responses and to effectively deal with challenges so that you are able to achieve your personal and academic best.

Partnership with First Nations House
Health & Wellness is also very pleased to announce a new partnership with First Nations House, to expand the outreach to the Indigenous student community:
Faith Chaput is a queer Métis woman whose family hails from the Red River/Treaty 1 Territory. Faith was born and raised in the city of Tkaronto on Dish With One Spoon Territory. Faith is a member of the Wolf Clan, and her traditional name is Red Hummingbird Woman which relates to her work as a healer/mental health counsellor. Faith’s experience is mainly rooted in the work she has done in community, educational and health-related settings providing front-line support to Indigenous and 2SLGBTQ adults, families and adolescents. Faith works through an intersectional, body-based, anti-oppressive, sex-positive, trauma informed lens and offers client centered care. Faith anchors her work in the values of self-determination and non-interference. Faith is excited to get started at First Nations House and is available for individual sessions (virtual for now) with students!
- All full-time and part-time students can call Health & Wellness at 416-978-8030 (selection option “5”) to book/reschedule an appointment with Faith. Appointments are currently being conducted virtually (by phone or video). Upon the reopening of First Nations House, Faith will be available in her new office Mondays – Thursdays (Fridays at Health and Wellness). Please book appointment in advance.
Grief Support Sharing Circle
Everyone grieves in their own unique way. When significant people in your life die, you may feel angry, isolated, sad, guilty, and lonely. The Grief Support Sharing Circle is an informal mutual support group, led by clinicians and campus chaplains, that provides support for students who have experienced the death of a loved one, as well as students experiencing anticipatory grief.
- Connect with other students on campus who are grieving in a supportive space.
- Share stories, experiences, and struggles.
- Learn ways to heal and gain strength during difficult times.
