From Intention to Action (FITA): ongoing one-to-one support 

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of being a student? If feelings of stress, anxiety or depression are getting in the way of your academic progress, the From Intention to Action Program (FITA) can help.

Ongoing support and encouragement from someone at the University can be one of the most important factors in your well-being and academic success. FITA offers a blend of personal and learning support for up to 12 sessions – the length of an academic semester. It requires commitment, but the benefits are worth it!
