Information for parents

If you are concerned about your child's mental health and wellbeing, you can access the resources for parents at Headspace and Beyond Blue.

La Trobe students have access to free and confidential short-term counselling. They may also benefit from after-hours telephone and online counselling.

Please note that we are unable to disclose whether your child is accessing our counselling services and/or what is being discussed in sessions, unless we have their written consent to do so. The only case when we are required to waive confidentiality is if we are concerned that our client or another person is at risk of imminent harm or we are compelled by law to release information. With a client's consent, parents are sometimes involved in sessions where this is considered therapeutically beneficial by the counsellor involved.

If you are concerned that your child or another person is at risk of imminent harm, please refer to the emergency contacts.
