Self-care in the time of COVID-19: Creative ways forward


ANU Counselling promotes, supports and enhances mental health and wellbeing within the ANU community.  ANU Counselling is a free, confidential and non-diagnostic service available to all currently enrolled ANU students.  No referral or Mental Health Treatment Plan from a General Practitioner is required to attend appointments. 

ANU Counselling offers trauma counselling for students that have experienced sexual assault and/or sexual harassment during their time at university.  Please inform the counsellor this is what you are seeking and your counsellor will discuss internal and external treatment options with you. 

The ANU Wellbeing and Support Line is a phone service for all current students who are experiencing situational stress, emotional difficulties and mental health concerns.  The service can also be used to provide debriefing support and assistance for student leaders.  The ANU Wellbeing and Support Line works with ANU Counselling but is operational 24 hours a day. Find out more, or contact the ANU Wellbeing and Support Line on 1300 050 327 (voice) or 0488 884 170 (text).

ANU Counselling is open each day of the year excluding weekends, public holidays and the University shutdown period.  To make an appointment, please phone on 02 6178 0455.  Further information about appointments is here
