Counseling & Mental Health

Counselling and Mental HealthSometimes you need a little extra help. At FIE, we have an open door policy and have many resources available to you as an FIE student, including a qualified and accredited counselor and psychotherapist as well as a wealth of in-house guides. If you or someone you know is struggling or just need someone to talk to, reach out! The Student Life team in Foundation House or our Residence Life Supervisors (RLS) in each of our student residences are always available to chat. If you would like to speak to someone about mental health accommodations (academic or residential), please contact our Director of Administration and Accessibility.
