January 2020 Updates 

Walk-in health clinics run most weekdays and evenings. There are many after-hours services (in person and online) available when our clinics are closed or reach capacity. If you need emergency care in a life-threatening health or safety situation, call 9-1-1 or go directly to the local Emergency Department at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre (entrance on King St. between George and Lower University).

Most counselling appointments are now booked same day by phone (613 533 2506), starting at 8:00am. If you are in distress or feel you are unsafe, urgent same day support is available weekdays at Mitchell Hall or at the AMHS Mental Health Crisis walk-in clinic at 552 Princess St. (between Alfred and Frontenac) weekdays 8:30 – 4:00.

Students can also call the local 24/7 AMHS KFLA Crisis Line at 613 544-4229, Empower Me, 24/7, at 1-844-741-6389, or Good2Talk, 24/7, at 1-866-925-5454.

No Show Policy: We want to serve as many students as possible, so please call 24/7 to cancel your appointment as soon as you know you can no longer attend as scheduled, or if you don't need it. If you do not provide 24 hours notice of cancellation, a no show fee will be applied to your SOLUS account. Please see our No Show policy for more details.

Stay flu free! We are offering free flu shots for all students. Call 613 533 2506 to book your appointment! Make sure your vaccinations are up to date and practice good personal hygiene: wash your hands and use hand sanitizer; avoid sharing eating or drinking utensils; cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Stay well!
