A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):
Staff and Faculty: Healthy Workplace
Carleton University’s Healthy Workplace initiative is an exciting program that is bringing workplace health to all Carleton’s staff and faculty. The program is based on exhaustive research on wellness and recognition practices throughout the university community. The Healthy Workplace Committee, comprised of staff from all over campus, seeks to make Carleton a healthy and enjoyable place to work.

A healthy workplace is about a cultural shift to a workplace were employees feel recognized for the work they do and are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The healthy workplace initiative is working to help you enjoy a better balance between your responsibilities at home and work by offering you the opportunity to get involved in healthy activities that will benefit your physical and mental health.

Students: Counselling Services
Confidential personal counselling services are available for current Carleton University students. Our primary responsibility is to alleviate distress and promote healthy functioning by providing short-term counselling services. Students can self refer to counselling. Some examples of the issues students may discuss with a counsellor include: coping with stress/homesickness, increasing sadness, handling a crisis, improving communication, learning to be assertive, increasing self-esteem, gender identity, understanding one’s sexuality and dealing with alcohol and drug concerns.
