ADMIN OFFICE TO BE CLOSED JUNE 3 & 4

The administrative office of the Faculty (MH 402) will be closed Wednesday, June 3 and Thursday June 4, so that administrative staff can attend Mental Health First Aid training.  The course was developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada and teaches first aid skills to help someone who is developing mental health problems or is experiencing a mental health crisis.  We apologize for any inconvenience as our staff participate in this important training.
