Psychological Assistance

Do you have questions about your personal or academic life? Come and talk to a counsellor at the Student Services centre. An appointment will be made for a preliminary assessment to determine the counselling approach that is best adapted to your needs.

Free and confidential individual consultations

It costs you nothing for these sessions, including an evaluation meeting and six subsequent therapeutic follow-up meetings. During your first appointment, you can ask any questions you may have, such as the approach and structure of the sessions, confidentiality and the cancellations policy. After seven free sessions, it is possible to add a few additional sessions after discussion and with the approval of the student counsellor.

Your first appointment in fewer than 15 working days*

To make an appointment with a student counsellor, simply visit the Student Services centre (room E-3042), call 514-396-8942 or email sae@etsmtl.ca.

*Although the vast majority of requests will be processed within 15 working days, the processing time for requests deemed less urgent may slightly exceed the usual time. However, the emergency response service (see below) is not affected.

Emergency Response Service

Are you experiencing a suicidal crisis or any other serious situation that could affect your personal, social or professional well-being? Student Services (Services aux étudiants – SAE) offers an emergency consultation service that is available during SAE business hours. A counsellor (psychologist or psychosocial practitioner) will take charge of your case the same day to provide you with the support you need and guide you toward the appropriate resources, as required.

Important: psychologists do not offer psychological assessment for the purpose of issuing a certificate of incapacity to pursue studies or to attend an exam. If this is what you need, consult your family doctor or a medical doctor at an emergency clinic.

As a complement to individual consultations, you can contact telephone counselling services and community resources that can give you the support you need.

Info-Santé, call 8-1-1
Phone service to consult a professional 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can speak to a healthcare professional at Info-Santé about non-urgent issues.
