HEALTH AND SAFETY
The BRT’s role is to identify and collaboratively coordinate caring, prompt, and effective responses to bias incidents to (1) support Western students, staff, and faculty who are targeted or impacted by these incidents and (2) educate the Western community about impacts and histories of such bias and actions to prevent future similar acts. The BRT does not replace or supersede processes through the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX Compliance, Student Conduct, or University Police to investigate alleged violations of university policy or civil rights or criminal law. The BRT’s role is one of support and education; the BRT does not impose discipline or sanctions.
The Counseling Center/PWS offers multiple pathways for students to thrive at Western and beyond, from therapy groups and individual counseling services to drop-in wellness outreach programs to self-care resources available on our website. We offer a unique volunteer opportunity through our Wellness Advocates program for students interested in contributing to a safe and healthy campus community, and we also contribute to the mental health professions by serving as a training site for graduate students in psychology and counseling. Students enrolled in 6 or more credits are automatically eligible for services, and students registered for fewer credits may access services by paying the Health Service Fee.
The SHC is staffed by a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and support staff who educate and assist students with preventive health care. SHC staff also evaluate, diagnose and treat physical and mental health concerns, illnesses and injuries.
