About Us

Counselling & Disability Services (CDS) provides a comprehensive package of psychological and academic support services to members of the York Community. Our clients are students registered at the University, but consultations with faculty and staff also occur as necessary. Included among the services provided are personal counselling (individual, group, and couples counselling as appropriate), crisis response and support, specialized support to students with learning, mental health, physical, sensory or medical disabilities, and various consultative and outreach activities to the York University community.

Since CDS is funded almost entirely by student ancillary fees, there is no additional charge for any of the core services provided to students. In some programs, a minimal refundable deposit may be used to enhance participation rates. In some cases, fees may be charged for services that go beyond the core services of the centre. The use of services at CDS is purely voluntary and CDS conducts assessments and clinical interventions only at the request of the primary individuals involved. Staff and interns take all possible precautions to maintain client confidentiality and guard against the disclosure of personal information unless informed, written consent has been obtained from the client. (For more information, please see our Privacy Statement).

We are situated in different locations on campus, with our main reception in Room N110 of the Bennett Centre for Student Services and can be reached by telephone at 416-736-5297 during our regular operating hours.
