UWindsor students now have access to 24/7 counselling services with the campus-wide launch of the My Student Support Program (MySSP), a program offered by a partnership between the University of Windsor and the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (UWSA) that has been funded for a full two-year renewal, making UWindsor the first post-secondary institution in Ontario to offer this program to their entire student population.

The program which offers calling and a live text-chat function with licensed counsellors was previously only available for International Students, and will now allow all students on campus, including International Students, students away on exchange programs, and alumni of the university as they enter the work force access to these services for free.

Through the downloadable app called MySSP, students can call or live chat via text for confidential counselling services 24/7 in up to 140 different languages and dialects, also available by phone through the 1-800 number and through the website. The app is downloadable in simplified Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Spanish, English, and French, with Hindi to be added in the next quarter.
