The Youth Wellness Network at U of T

Photo: studying

Welcome to the University of Toronto St. George campus chapter of the Youth Wellness Network. Our club is recognized by the Student Life department of the university. We hold group meetings twice a month to discuss upcoming events that we organize. We also provide additional resources to the student body at U of T to increase awareness for mental, emotional and physical well-being while inspiring students to live their best lives.

We created this community so the students at U of T could have firsthand access to support through events and resources on campus and online. This chapter / club is a place where you can connect with likeminded students to create a community of peers all focused on wellness. Our goal is to increase happiness and optimism amongst the student body of U of T.

We are currently looking to expand our community with more members; you do not have to be a U of T student to join this chapter, anyone is welcome!
