Keep.meSAFE is a mental health support program that was established at McGill from the sheer need to support all the learners to cope with daily stress, anxiety, overwhelm, academic performance pressure, and so much more. Did you know that students are more likely to experience mental health distress than the general population, as well as the fact that access to mental health services can be restrictive for the McGill population, overall?

We’re working towards not only making these services available to all, but also easy, safe and valuable to anyone using them.

What is Keep.meSAFE?

The Keep.meSAFE program is a confidential and secure online mental health counselling service that specializes in student mental health support. Students have access to:

  • In-person counselling appointments with hundreds of licensed counsellors in Montreal;
  • 24/7/365 immediate and unlimited access through telephone and mobile chat, even when travelling abroad (students located internationally can use the service as well);
  • Access to mental health care in over 60 languages with diverse counsellors who understand your experience and the unique needs of your community (including LGBTQ2+, BIPOC, immigrant communities, international students, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and more);
  • A continuously increase array of services in the mental support domain: academic issues, anxiety, career development, personal relationships, depression, bullying, and considerably more.
