The Student Wellbeing Team

The Student Wellbeing Team is here to help if you’re feeling sad, lonely, or anxious.

It can take time to settle into your new life. Sleep patterns and eating habits can be disrupted and you might feel homesick, tired or sad during your first few weeks, but this is all perfectly normal.


Sometimes these problems can lead to more serious mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. If you feel you need help and want to talk, our Student Wellbeing Team is here for you. Vincent and Elise are both available for in person, online or telephone counselling. To make an appointment, visit Level 12 or email

If you or a friend experience any of the following symptoms for an extended period of time, you should seek help from the Student Wellbeing Team:

  • Loss of interest in hobbies or typical activities such as attending class
  • Frequent bad moods
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty managing your emotions
  • Sudden weight gain or weight loss
  • Social withdrawal
  • Problems concentrating, remembering or thinking logically
  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Long periods of feeling sad
  • Excessive worrying
  • Symptoms of anxiety such as heart palpitations, headaches, hot flushes or chills, shaking or shortness of breath
  • Detachment from reality

Many mental health problems do not go away by themselves and require professional help. Not sure if you have a problem? Speak to the Student Wellbeing Team on Level 12 or email

You can also visit Beyond Blue for lots of information on wellbeing, mental health, and ways to support yourself during difficult times.
