Looking after your mental health

Almost half of Australian adults will experience a mental illness at some point during their life. Mood disorders, anxiety, substance abuse and other conditions do not discriminate, and can affect anyone. A person’s mental health affects how they feel, think, behave and relate to others. It is important that students are comfortable with their Global Learning experience.

Advice and strategies to help you manage your wellbeing and mental health are available on Western Sydney University's Mental Health & Wellbeing webpage. The University also provides a free confidential counselling service with a team of qualified social workers and psychologists who are trained to work with diverse student populations on any issues of concern. Find out more.
