SEXUAL HEALTH

Worried about your sexual health or romantic life? Need information on campus services or access to birth control? SEXed is here for you.

What is SEXed?

 

We are a group of dedicated peers, supported by a small team of faculty, who are there to answer your questions and help you find what you need, from information to birth control. We support your sexual and romantic priorities with information on consent, healthy relationships, safer sex, peer pressure, and gender and sexual identity. All the Peer Educators have received training from specialist organizations. We organize information campaigns, fun events, a referral service, and safe spaces to explore a wide range of relevant issues. Our approach is non-judgemental, inclusive, diverse, and confidential.

 

Where can I find SEXed?

 

Our office is just off the lobby in C-172. Drop by for a lollipop, condom, or a quick chat. If the door is open, come on in.

You can email us and follow us on Facebook and Instagram

 

Also, our resource guide is a great place to find local information and services!  STUDENT RESOURCE GUIDE

 

How do I join SEXed?

 

SEXed recruits new Peer Educators once or twice a year, depending on need. The best time to join is in the spring, towards the end of your first year. However, we are always happy to hear from interested students, so please let a Peer Educator or teacher know you want to help out!

PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT

Feeling stressed out? Experiencing panic attacks? Feeling down and not sure why? Your relationship with your partner is in trouble? Not getting along with your parents? In need of housing?

The service offers:

  • Confidential and professional support
  • A safe place to express and understand your emotions

HEALTH CLINIC

The Champlain-Bishop’s Health Clinic is located in the new Sports and Wellness center and offers health care to all students who have paid the student services fee. Staff and faculty may use the service for a small fee. The staff at Health Services will do everything possible to treat illnesses and injuries quickly so that class absences will be kept to a minimum.

 

The staff includes nurses, a two part-time physicians and a secretary who are available Monday through Friday. Students wishing to see the nurse will be seen in order of arrival. To see the doctor, it is recommended that you make an appointment. Emergency situations will always have priority.

 

Records are strictly confidential. No information is released, for any reason, without the student’s consent.

 

Health Services are supported by student fees, therefore, there is no charge to use the service. However, the doctor’s services and the cost of any tests required are paid by health insurance or provincial medicare plans.

Quebec students who do not have their Medicare cards, or who present cards that have expired will be required to pay the full cost of services immediately.

Canadian students from another province are fully covered by their provincial medicare plans provided they:

 

  1. inform the Ministry of Health in their home province that they are studying in Quebec before they leave home;
  2. have their Provincial Medicare card with them when they come to see the doctor. If the card is unavailable or has expired, the full cost of services must be paid immediately.
