NUlistens

We are here to listen.

About

NUlistens is a Nipissing University program that informs Students that we care about their well-being. 

It invites students to seek out supportive helpers, and trained listeners. 

NUlistens events provide opportunities for campus wide dialogue about positive mental health, safety and wellness.

NUlisteners aim to help ensure students receive the appropriate supports.
