Hear what residents are saying about the Resident Wellness Office:
- My experience with the UBC Resident Wellness Office was great. The sessions were very useful and provided me with lots of practical tools to overcome a difficult and stressful time.
- The Resident Wellness Office was there for me when I needed it. Quick access to counselling, flexible appointments and an amazing counsellor made my experience excellent. I’m really grateful that we have such an incredible service available.
- I cannot rate this service highly enough, the guidance provided was extremely helpful in getting my myself back on track.
- I had a wonderful experience, and have openly recommended it to colleagues in distress.
- At a time when I felt like I had no one to turn to, the Resident Wellness Office stood by me and offered me support beyond what I could imagine.
- During counselling I felt safe, supported and heard. I would strongly recommend the RWO to residents for that extra support we may need during our training.
- I am so thankful that I made the call and I feel completely liberated to tell anyone facing the challenges of residency that it is not worth it to keep smiling and pushing through challenges without regard for your own mental health.
