Find counselling and LGBTIQA+ support

News of the passing of a former La Trobe student, Bridget Flack, has left many shaken, particularly those in the LGBTIQA+ community. In honour of the impact this may have had on students, the La Trobe Counselling Team have set a day aside on Friday 18 December 2020 for anyone who would like to speak with a counsellor.  Half hour sessions can be booked with the Queer Counsellor by submitting an online enquiry

La Trobe University students can also contact the La Trobe University Crisis Line for immediate support by calling 11300 146 307 or texting 0488 884 100 (currently available 24/7). Our heartfelt thoughts are with her family and friends.
