Thriving in Action

What's Thriving in Action? 

Thriving in Action is a program like no other - it brings mental health, wellbeing, equity, and learning strategies together in a unique intervention that will leave you feeling more hopeful, more resilient, and more successful.

Thriving in Action welcomes all students including those on academic probation, students on the Centre for Student Development and Counselling (CSDC) waitlist, students with disabilities, and injured or struggling athletes. We welcome racialized and minoritized students, Indigenous students, equity-seeking students, LGBTQQIP2SAA students.

We welcome mature students, international students. We welcome Spanning the Gaps students, Fresh Start students, grad students, working students, and students raising or caring for families. In other words, if you feel like you’re ready to learn and practise new strategies to thrive personally and academically, we not just welcome but encourage you to give TiA a try.

Please feel free to email to learn more.

School is hard sometimes. But learning better, feeling better, and doing better is possible.
