For many years, in addition to the services offered by the college’s Health Centre and Counselling Department, St. Clair students have had 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week “electronic access” to assistance for their physical and psychological well-being.
Beginning September 1, however, the round-the-clock phone-line and website for those services will change. The college’s administration and Student Representative Council have engaged a new private-sector company to provide these electronic consulting services.
On that date, students will begin using the “Real Campus” service, by dialing 1-877-390-REAL (7325), or logging on to http://realcampus.ca – or, to access the “virtual doctor”, https://www.getmaple.ca. Apps are also available for these services.
In addition to a huge library of regularly updated self-help information on the phone service and website, they can be used to obtain referrals to locally based medical practitioners, therapists and counsellors.
Both websites, also, have “chat” functions to assist students with gaining full access to all their services.
Among the nifty features on the Maple “virtual doctor” website is the ability to secure prescriptions, sick notes for work, and consultations for family members. There are fees for a number of these services.
Real Campus (and Maple) are partners of “We Speak Student”, the company which provides St. Clair students with their health insurance plan (wespeakstudent.com).
