Queen’s community invited to participate in HCDS review

Members of the Queen’s community are invited to provide their perspectives on the services provided by Health, Counselling and Disability Services (HCDS) at two open meetings next week, as part of a review that stems from a recommendation of the 2012 report of the Principal’s Commission on Mental Health.

“Queen’s provides a broad range of health and wellness programs and services through HCDS,” says Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs, whose office is coordinating the review. “This review allows us to identify opportunities to enhance these important services for students. We look forward to the participation of students, staff and faculty members, either in person or in writing.”
