ACCESS OM at the University of Alberta is a friendly and caring service looking to improve student wellness and mental health by connecting students to supports, bridging gaps, and providing assistance as long as needed.  

We are working towards improving your experience with accessing mental health services, as well as providing youth-specific services and interventions. 

Our services are part of a nation-wide initiative that focuses on student wellness & mental health. By participating in this project, you can make a difference in how mental health services are provided on campus as well as across Canada.
