Referring a student to Counselling and Psychological Services and Student Central

Staff are able to make a referral directly to Counselling and Psychological Services and Student Central. This can include concerns about a student’s mental or physical health, program and administrative issues, or other concerns.

Counselling staff will review the information provided and determine which service would be best placed to help the student. The student will be contacted and offered support. After you have sent the referral, it is encouraged that you to continue to follow up with the student as appropriate.

Please note, if the student is not aware of the referral, please contact Counselling and Psychological Services on (02) 4921 6622 to discuss.
