myWELLNESS Orientation with Tailwind

Tailwind is a student development organization focused on providing proactive support to set students up for success as they transition into post-secondary education.

In collaboration with Advising Services, Tailwind has created a myWELLNESS Orientation program, designed to orient students to life in college, teach proactive wellness strategies, and connect students to on/off campus supports. 

By signing up for the program, Northern College students can connect with a Peer Support Counsellor at Tailwind and join the Tailwind Northern Community.
