During 2018, we will focus on raising awareness, building capacity and promoting mental health for the UQ community against each of the six focus areas.

5. Provision of mental health support services

By providing coordinated and timely access to UQ mental health services, supported by eHealth technologies and in partnership with community services, UQ is committed to supporting students who experience psychological distress and mental illness by:

  • ensuring ongoing management of existing UQ mental health services at all main campuses to ensure they remain accessible and provide a high-quality service under increasing demand.
  • establishing formal partnerships and a referral framework with external mental health support providers such as Headspace.
  • developing appropriate out-of-hours mental health support services.
  • ensuring ongoing management of existing counselling services to ensure the ratio of counsellors to students remains manageable.
