UNB Counselling Services:

UNB Counselling Services (Fredericton and Saint John) offer counselling sessions by video through Zoom for Healthcare, on a secure platform, to any students feeling overwhelmed or experiencing challenges in coping.  Students can email to book a session. All students also have 24/7 access to TAO (Therapist Assisted Online) which is an online self help resource.

UNB Counselling also offers a number of groups to help students stay connected from a distance including, but not limited to, a process group called Road to Resilience that meets online on Wednesdays, a Mindfulness group online on Thursdays, and a psychoeducational group to teach coping strategies called "Feel Your Best Fridays". Support groups offered by UNB Counselling can change, so please reach out to them to discuss group support options.

Other resources

In an effort to support the UNB community, the Human Rights and Positive Environment Office has gathered a compilation of works and resources that is aimed at students as well as academic and non-academic staff. We especially hope that white folks, wanting to be better educated about racism here in Canada and beyond, will spend some time with these in order to be effective allies in the fight against racism.

We’ve drawn heavily on compilations shared with us, including lists compiled by sociology and gender studies student Hanna Jacobsen from the university of Victoria, as well as activist and filmmaker Sarah Sophie Flicker and writer Alyssa Klein (May 2020). Having added several suggestions of our own, we will continue to gather, collate, and annotate resources to add to this expanding compendium. If you have a recommendation that you would like to see added you can contact HRPEO Communications.

Gender neutral washroom locations

Gender-neutral washrooms are those devoid of any gender-specific signage or designation. They are designed to accommodate the needs of a greater range of people, as many individuals are not comfortable using male or female-gendered washrooms. They also exist to provide privacy to any individual who requires it, no matter their reasons. This list will be updated as gender-neutral washrooms are identified. If you are aware of a gender-neutral washroom that is not listed here, email indicating the building and room number.
