There is a lot of information available on mental health topics.
It can be difficult to know where to begin so we UWA Student Services has compiled a list of links to a few favourites.
Counselling services are available locally in Albany but they can also be delivered from the Perth campuses.
Face-to-face counselling is available in Albany. All counselling is confidential and the first sessions are free of charge.
To access the service, all you need is your UWA or Curtin Campus Card and a current enrolment statement. If you don’t have these items with you for your appointment, you can still access the service.
This, however, will mean the counselling service has to call the Centre to confirm that you are one of our students. It might be that you would rather the Centre didn’t know you were accessing counselling, in which case you need to remember to take your Campus Card and proof of enrolment with you.
You have a choice of services and counsellors.
This service is available by telephone. To avoid long-distance telephone bills, you can arrange for a uni counsellor to call you at home, or contact the Albany Centre to arrange a private place for the consultation on one of the Centre’s phones.
If you are uncertain about the process and unsure whether counselling is a good option, you are welcome to make some preliminary enquiries by asking that one of the counsellors call you back. Counsellors will do this as soon as possible, clarify any concerns you may have and help you make a decision about the next step
Counsellors are experienced in university issues and can put you in touch with other people who can help if necessary.
Referrals to other specialist services can also be arranged if that is appropriate. All counselling is confidential and the first sessions are free of charge.Back to top
