Wellbeing Connect and Check-In

Wellbeing Connect provides support for you to manage your own wellbeing and reach your goals. We recognise that that life can be difficult and sometimes we need support to find our way through it.

We provide support for multiple situations where just seeing a counsellor or study adjustments with AccessAbility and Inclusion might not be enough to assist you in your situation, or you need something slightly different.  We can connect you with many different services both internal and external to the University that might be able to help you in your situation and act as a point of contact to help guide you through. We also provide tailored support relating to adjustment to the COVID  situation. Our team members are tertiary trained professionals with vast experience in mental health, case management, and social, psychological fields

How do we work?

Wellbeing Connect:

  • Focus on you the student as an individual and listen to understand your goals.
  • Support you with the situations that concern you in your university or personal life.
  • Discuss strength-based ways to keep you on track with your goals
  • Assist you to find and link into University and community-based services and resources.
  • Respect your confidentiality across the student service team, it is your information, and we seek your consent to share this outside the health wellbeing service.
  • Work in collaboration with the other Health and wellbeing services and any existing services you may be in touch with
  • Liaise with other areas of the University such as academics, accommodation, and Advocacy

What happens when you submit a referral?

All requests for support are managed to identify the appropriate pathway for your referral. On occasions where further information is required, you may be contacted requesting clarification to ensure that your referral is directed to the best suited Health, Wellbeing and Inclusion service. We are unable to provide supporting documents during this first contact.

If you are currently seeing a La Trobe counsellor or have done so in the last six months you can book an appointment by calling 9479 2956 or email counselling@latrobe.edu.au

Demand for appointments can be high therefore you may be placed on a waiting list for an appointment.
