AUT offers free counselling services and mental health support to AUT students. Sessions are confidential and are delivered by professional counsellors. You can bring a support person with you.
Counselling is a process of privately talking through anything that is concerning you. Counsellors provide a practical and solution-focused counselling approach to student concerns.
You can talk about a range of issues, whether these are personal, study-related or in other areas of your life. This includes:
If you are concerned about your mental health, support is available with a Mental Health Advisor. They offer practical advice and if you need other services, they can liaise with them to meet your needs. Students can refer themselves; a formal mental health diagnosis is not necessary to access this service.
Please tell us if you need an appointment with a Counsellor or a Mental Health Advisor, and if you need a special consideration.
Talk to us about your appointment needs so we can ensure you have the appropriate booking.
