Health and Counselling Centre

How to access our services (2020-21):

In response to COVID-19, most Health and Counselling Centre services will be offered virtually this year, via secure video conference. The first step for accessing any of our services is to book an appointment with the Intake Nurse. To make this easier and more efficient, we have implemented a new online booking and reminder system (Health Myself). All students must register with Health Myself before they can book their online appointments. We still have same-day access for some services, but these are appointment-based only; no drop-ins.  Same-day Intake appointments open up at 8:30 am Monday- Friday.

If you are a current StFX student, please register for Health Myself by clicking the link below:  

Health Myself Registration

If you have trouble registering, please call the Health and Counselling Centre at 902-867-2263 during office hours for assistance.

Reminder: You won’t be able to book an appointment at the Health and Counselling Centre until after you have registered with Health Myself, so best to do it now, in case you forget later!
