Wellness Spotlight – Chaplaincy Care

April 10, 2012

Red River College is fortunate to be able to provide a wide range of Wellness supports for staff and students (though access varies from one campus to another).

This month the Wellness Blog turns the spotlight on Chaplaincy Care.  As noted in the College’s Day Planner:

Students and staff may drop by or phone Chaplaincy Care and speak with chaplains (representing various denominations) regarding personal concerns, relationships, stress, crisis situations, life issues, values, spirituality, grief or change, self-esteem, addictions, or any other concerns.  Chaplaincy Care’s volunteer chaplains serve people of all races, beliefs and cultures.  They are here to provide students and staff with personal support, encouragement, empowerment, hope and can facilitate study groups.

Chaplaincy Care is for students and staff looking for a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on.  They provide complete confidentiality and a safe place for support and conversation as you work through life issues, stress, relationships or spiritual questions. They also provide a crisis ”Care Line”, available Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The cell phone # is:  898-2686. 

They also maintain a prayer room (A-223 on NDC) for quiet, personal prayer, meditation, renewal or reading. The room is available between 7:00 a.m. to midnight, whenever the college is open. If you want more information about these services and those who provide them, please check out the College’s website.
