Mental health support: Student Advisor - Mental health

At AUT we appreciate that our students come from diverse backgrounds, with individual skills and experiences. The Student Advisor - Mental Health offers support to AUT students to ensure their mental health needs are being met and they can achieve their academic goals.

Support can be ongoing or brief, depending on the needs of the student. Students can refer themselves; a formal psychiatric diagnosis is not necessary to access this service.
