Mental health and wellbeing

 

Mental Health and Disability Services

Through UQ, students can access free and confidential support, services, and facilities for students who are on a temporary or ongoing disability, illness, or mental health condition. Support is also available for students who are the primary carer of a person with a disability, long-term illness, or mental health condition when the caring role impacts upon their studies.

An advisor will work with you to identify the support that you might need and this could include:

  • Support to discuss the functional impact of the condition on studies with academic staff
  • Access on campus
  • Accessible learning materials
  • Extensions to course work
  • Exam adjustments.

Relevant medical documentation is required.

Your first point of referral is UQ College reception.

RESPECT, NOW, ALWAYS

All members of the UQ College community have a right to feel welcome, safe, and supported. We are committed to providing safe and inclusive campus communities, free from harassment, bullying, discrimination, and assault and encourage members of the UQ College community to report and seek support when these behaviours occur.

The booklet, which you can download, is to assist you on your journey throughout your program, to enable you to be able to identify bullying, sexual harassment, or discrimination, and have the knowledge to access available help should you need it.

If you experience these behaviours in any form, then we encourage you to take action as outlined in this information and the resources that are available to you.
