The Student Wellness Centre offers urgent and non-urgent physical and mental health care to U of S students, their spouses and children, and is currently offering online and over the phone services. If you would like to speak with a trained mental health professional, please email and indicate you are a CoM graduate student looking to speak with Eman Demmans. 

Ms. Demmans is our new CoM graduate student counselor and her services through the Wellness Center will be allocated specifically to graduate students.

Eman Demmans has been working as a therapist with USASK Student Wellness Centre since 2019 and continues to allocate service to CoM graduate students. Eman's postsecondary training began at the University of Saskatchewan, with an undergraduate degree in psychology, and later, a degree in education. She began her career as the program director at a non-profit student-parent support center, and eventually transitioned to teaching at the collegiate level. After a decade of experience as an educator, she decided to pursue her passion for counselling and psychology by obtaining a master's degree from the University of Lethbridge. Eman holds a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) designation, registered through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and believes in supporting clients through strength-based therapeutic frameworks including: cognitive behaviour therapy, person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, and narrative therapy. As a first-generation Canadian, Eman's practice is strongly guided by antiracist and anti-oppressive values and a commitment to provide inclusive and equitable counselling services to all individuals.

Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing the worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Just like physical first aid is provided until medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate support is found or until the crisis is resolved. You will learn to recognize a change in behaviour, respond with a confident conversation, and guide to appropriate resources and support. 

Please check the USask Wellness Calendar for Mental Health First Aid training dates. This course is free of charge for all graduate students and their supervisors within the College of Medicine. Please contact for more information.

The University of Saskatchewan community has consistently voiced the belief that no form of sexual violence is ever acceptable and that sexual violence will not be tolerated.

Still, we know there is work to be done to ensure we all know how to address and reduce incidents of sexual violence. Sexual violence prevention and response may not be something that everyone immediately knows how to do, but it is something that we can learn.

The University has launched its sexual violence prevention and response online learning modules which contain information about sexual violence, consent, bystander intervention, and responding to disclosures of sexual violence.
