Quarantine Student Connection
The Quarantine Student Connection by guard.meCARES is a professionally monitored, weekly student support group available through videoconferencing for students in quarantine. This service is available for inbound students arriving for the fall term of 2020. Broken down by province, students can register for a group session held weekly (morning or afternoon) during the duration of their quarantine. Monitored by a mental health professional, students lead the 30-minute session, sharing experiences, coping strategies, and educating each other on ways to improve their overall health and wellness. Through these weekly support groups, the students will gain the mental health benefits from virtual “check-ups” and staying socially connected. All sessions are in English.
