It is okay to take a break – Mental Health Support for Students and Candidates

We understand receiving an unsuccessful result on the Common Final Exam (CFE) is difficult. We want you to know that your journey doesn’t end here. You’ve already shown determination by taking on the CFE, and that’s something to be proud of. Take the time you need to reflect, regroup, and recharge.

All members, candidates, and students along with their immediate family members, may access free wellness resources and services. You are encouraged to consider these resources as part of your self-care as you, like all of us, attend to physical and emotional well-being.

The following supports can be accessed through the web address which follows:

ICAN (Conquer Anxiety and Nervousness) – Anxiety Program: People looking for help for anxiety and depression can benefit from doing this program. In this program, you will learn and understand anxiety.

Mindwell U: (5 minutes a day to learn the basics in mindfulness) A free online challenge that takes just five minutes a day, and can be accessed anywhere and on any device.

Therapy Assistance Online (TAO):  A free and private online resource available to Nova Scotians. It includes interactive activities and videos for people having challenges with their mental health.
