Student Safety and Wellbeing

hands shaking with lock symbol and call to action to lodge disclosure If you are aware of sexual misconduct that has either happened to you directly, happened to someone else or that you have witnessed, receive support by lodging a disclosure.

The Student Safety and Wellbeing team is here to provide confidential support to students experiencing a range of issues that can impact on their university experience and academic engagement.

 

Case Managers have backgrounds in health, social work, counselling and human services. They work from person-centred and trauma-informed practice frameworks. This means that you will be treated with dignity and respect and will receive a transparent and confidential service that will empower you to make choices and connect with others.  

 

The Student Safety and Wellbeing team provides two support streams:

• tenancy issues

• advice for respondents.

 

Nurse Practitioner

The Student Safety and Wellbeing team employs a Nurse Practitioner (NP) with expertise in women's health, sexual health and forensic medicine in the care of students who have encountered sexual violence.

The NP works across both the case management side sexual assault and sexual harassment response as well as at ANU Health, providing access to sexual health support.

 

Confidentiality

Case Managers and the Nurse Practitioner follow professional and legal guidelines on confidentiality and will not disclose the information you provide to them without your permission, unless reasons, such as the law require them to or there are compelling reasons such as significant risk to yourself or someone else. If you have any questions about confidentiality, please raise this with one of the Case Managers or Nurse Practitioner.
