Counselling Services

Counselling servicesConfidential counselling and supports are available to all Red Deer Polytechnic students free of charge.

While your Red Deer Polytechnic experience may be one of the best times of your life, it can also be one of the most stressful. You may face challenges while attending our Polytechnic, and sometimes this can interfere with your ability to do your best academic work. Because of this, most students may benefit from speaking to a counsellor.
