Supporting Your Wellness & Well-being at Western

    Coming soon: Recovery College 

    Launching Winter 2023, Wellness & Equity Education and Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences are collaborating to establish a Recovery College at Western University to enhance mental health support for students.

    A Recovery College is a unique mental health and well-being learning center where people with lived mental health experiences (i.e., experts by experience) come together to co-create, co-deliver, and discuss courses on topics that support mental health. (e.g., skill building, recreational, vocational, etc.). Recovery Colleges are rooted in the principles of connection, self-identity, hope, meaning, and empowerment. If you have questions about the Recovery College, please email

    “I've found Ontario Shores programming to be life-changing, and it means a lot to participate in creating something that could really improve someone's life.”
