The University of Ottawa is committed to ensuring the good health and well-being of its staff and understands the importance of promoting good mental health to making it possible for staff to excel professionally.

Helping a person in distress (quick guide)

We highly recommend you read and print this new one-page guide to helping others in distress (PDF). It is meant to help campus community members recognize, respond to and refer those around them who need assistance. Displayed and shared around campus, it also becomes a powerful tool to raise awareness around mental health and wellness issues.
