Cares Week Peer Support Centre

Being a student can be stressful, and we often forget how important it is to prioritize our own well-being. Each year, the Peer Support Centre dedicates one week during the winter term to promoting self-care and self-compassion. Cares Week takes places from March 2-6.


We are excited to host a variety of events throughout this important week for you!
