Holiday Wellness Resources from Dr. Maria Gordon
While the holidays bring much happiness and excitement, it can also be a difficult time for some of us. SAES’ Wellness Services Counsellor, Dr. Maria Gordon, is here to support any adult education students who may be struggling during this time:
"There are many feelings people may have over the holiday season – some moments may be filled with laughter and joy, while others may be sad, lonely, or overwhelming. I encourage students to embrace their feelings and work through them, whatever they may be."
Dr. Maria Gordon will also continue to be available for drop in counselling every Tuesday and Thursday (excluding December 24 and 31). Students who you need someone to talk over the holidays, can arrange for a call or videochat by texting/calling me at (514) 700-2832 or emailing between 9 AM and 5 PM on Tuesday or Thursday.
I hope you find these resources helpful as you walk through the holidays, and encourage you to reach out to Wellness Services if you need any additional advice or support during this period.
