Previously known as Speak Up, Safer Community is a free, confidential support service if you're experiencing concerning, threatening, inappropriate or uncomfortable behaviour.
The goal of our program is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of male and male identifying students at La Trobe. Through a range of different approaches, we want to encourage men to have more conversations about their own mental health and perhaps help other men find their voice along the way.
Multifaith spiritual wellbeing advisors who can help you on your faith journey or connect you with services in your community.
At La Trobe University, we acknowledge that our campuses are located on the lands of many Traditional Custodians in Victoria. We acknowledge that these lands were stolen, and sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to elders past and present and we recognise their ongoing connection to their lands. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
This service is a free and safe space to have a yarn and talk about any troubles in your life. Students from any campus can access this service by phone, via zoom or face-to-face contact.
Please note: The face-to-face service is only available at the Bundoora campus.
La Trobe University has dedicated Queer Counsellors who have experience in supporting students with diverse sexualities and gender identities, and are available at the Melbourne (Bundoora) and Bendigo campuses (or by phone from the Mildura, Shepparton and Albury-Wodonga campuses).
Queer counselling is free and confidential. Having a safe space to speak freely about what’s going on, without being judged, can help people work through problems and gain new perspectives and solutions.
The whole La Trobe Counselling Service is proudly queer-friendly too, so you are also welcome to see any of our other counsellors to talk through LGBTIQA+ issues.
