College is an exciting time, but can come with unexpected challenges as you balance education with your other daily activities. Your mental health and well-being are important contributors to your success.

At NLC we are proud to offer free counselling services for students as part of our Supported Distance Learning model.

You are here to learn, we are here to help.

Your 30 minute personalized Wellness Check Up with a Counsellor includes:

  • supported self-assessment
  • identification of your strengths
  • goal-setting support to address self-identified areas of improvement
  • access to additional resources and services
  • follow-up support as needed
