Student Wellness

As a military university and unit of the Canadian Armed Forces, the faculty and staff of the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) care for the safety and wellbeing of its students, and mental health crises are taken very seriously and understand that timely care is of utmost importance.

When the RMC community rallies together in response to incidents on campus, it reminds itself that everyone is a member of a great team whose members care for each other reaching out to friends, colleagues, fellow students, and family on campus, whenever someone see or sense that someone may be struggling and in need of help.

Available on campus to build resilience and engage proactively in overall mental well-being are the RMC Success Centre and the Resilience Plus Program. The Success Centre is available for those who are unsure of what support they might need, or where to access this support, and Resilience Plus can provide coaching to be better prepare to successfully react when life throws a challenge, and before circumstances become overwhelming. There are also the volunteers of the Sentinel Program, CAF members who can help colleagues learn about resources and provide a kind ear to listen when needed.

Many resources are available when more than a caring friend to listen or to talk to is needed, starting with the chain of command, whose responsibility it is to look after our people. For undergrad students of RMC, their Training Wing staff always remain a safe point of first contact to help when they face issues or challenges of any kind.

Other permanent resources at RMC include our resident Chaplains (Padres) – not only religious and spiritual guides but also skilled counsellors – who are present throughout RMC and available to engage with whomever requires support.

Members of the RMC Community remember that they are here for each other and, when more help is needed, resources are available. Anyone who needs help, feels unsure, or just wants some extra support in difficult times at RMC know that it is an act of strength to reach out if and when one is struggling, and to ask for help when needed.


All RMC Students, Staff and Faculty of RMC can contact the or visit the staff at the College Success Centre.
