Parents and Families

PARENTS, FAMILIES, SIGNIFICANT OTHERS, AND SUPPORT PERSONS OF EVERY STUDENT ARE WELCOME AT UOIT!

Parents and families are an important source of support for students. We hope that this website will provide you with information that helps you continue to be engaged in your student’s mental health and well-being.

At UOIT we understand the close association between student health and wellness and academic success.  We therefore offer a range of services for students to promote their positive mental health, strengthen their resilience, and help them manage the multiple demands of university life.  If you are concerned about your student’s adjustment and well-being, or feel that your student may benefit from support and assistance, please have them contact Student Mental Health Services to set up an appointment. 

For students needing long term counselling support or specialized mental health services, UOIT can provide referrals to assist them in accessing resources in the community.

Confidentiality

At UOIT, communication regarding your student takes place with the student directly. In accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), UOIT does not release any information about a student’s academic record to their parent or guardian if that access has not been authorized by the student.
