LAST UPDATED: 2018-08-31
This year, in a dramatic change from last year, I’ve not updated anything other than adding this one sentence; so if you see anything that’s no longer true and accurate, please let me know and I’ll make the necessary changes (and of course credit you for your generous crowdsourcing collegiality).
I (Dr O’Brien) am sharing some general useful resources below: openly-accessible freely-available information from the University. I use these resources a lot in the advising side of my work, you might also find them helpful, and they could also help you to help someone else. There are many people here at UBC who can help; even if it is “just” talking to someone with whom you feel comfortable and whom you trust, who will listen to you, that alone is already a vital service.
The same goes for any need to talk and to find support, whether something has happened to you or to someone you know, and also if nothing has happened but you worry that it might. Even if sometimes this seems like an overwhelmingly large university, and impersonal through its size and complexity: UBC is a compassionate caring community, made up of individual human beings.
