SAIT Update | 10.07.2019

World Mental Health Day is Thursday, Oct. 10 — take a moment to check in with yourself and boost your calm, then check out SAIT services and events to help you focus on well-being.

Having a healthy mind is a major factor in your success as a student, in your experience at SAIT, in the workplace and in life. Every student can thrive at SAIT.

Remember these five tips from our experts at Student Development and Counselling:

1. Getting involved is good for you.

Join a club, attend events, volunteer, drop by the Saitsa Peer Support Centre.

📅  Saitsa Mental Health Expo

2. Boost your skills and your confidence.

Know your deadlines and important dates, talk to an academic coach, access tutoring in person/online, use your library.

📅  Math and Science Tutoring Hub

3. One day at a time.

Get organized with a study plan, make time for fun, find balance — meditate, attend de-stressing events, such as Wellness Wednesday.

📅  Long Day Against Procrastination

4. Take care of yourself.

Get active with on-campus recreation, use the SAIT Health Clinic, fuel up right with a Saitsa Good Food Box.

📅 Stress Less: Relaxation Tips and Tricks

5. Always make the call — you’re not alone.

Talk it out with a counsellor or trained listener 24/7, in person, over the phone or online.

📅 Let’s Talk at Aldred Centre and the Art Smith Aero Centre


Student success is at the core of SAIT’s values, and mental health and well-being is vital to that success. Through collaborative action and an inclusive spirit of community support, SAIT’s Student Mental Health Strategy will foster a climate for learning that empowers our students to thrive.


Be a wellness warrior

Have an idea to promote mental health awareness, create a more inclusive campus or reduce stigmas surrounding mental health concerns? If you have the master plan, we can help with the money. Apply by Tuesday, Oct. 15 to access funding to promote student mental health and well-being at SAIT.


New services for parents

We’re happy to announce two new services for students with dependent children — a Family Care room and Busy Bags.

The new Family Care room on the main campus in MD102, Stan Grad Centre is equipped with baby essentials and has space for private feeding. Parents are welcome to use the room — please email familycare@sait.ca for the access code.

Busy Bags are activity-filled backpacks placed at service areas around SAIT. Keep your little ones engaged with crafts, activity books and games for children ages one to 10.
