Support available for our Turkish and Syrian communities

We recognise that last week’s devastating earthquakes in southern Turkey and northern Syria have had far reaching impacts across the world.

La Trobe University is a richly diverse and multicultural community, and we acknowledge that some of our Turkish and Syrian staff and students may have loved ones living in or visiting the affected regions. We want you to know that our thoughts are with you, and we will continue to support you as much as we can at this very challenging time. 

Events like this can be distressing and overwhelming. Continuing coverage of the aftermath of the crisis can be confronting and impact us in an ongoing way. We are here now or when you’re ready.   

Free and confidential support services are available from our Health, Wellbeing and Inclusion team. For support, reach out to  

Please look after yourselves and support each other as people within our La Trobe community at this challenging time.
