Australian University Mental Health Framework

The framework provides guidance for mentally healthy university settings that support student mental health and wellbeing in collaboration with the mental health sector. The framework is structured around six principles that support student mental health and wellbeing and may inspire discussion, promote new thinking and interventions, and facilitate evaluation and learning.

Consultation and responding to students.

Western Sydney University MHWBT aims to support all our staff. Our door is always open to staff who want to discuss a difficult situation or raise concerns about a student. Our hope is that a discussion will offer a fresh perspective and generate new ways to approach the student or situation.

If you wish to consult a Mental Health Advisor or refer a student to us, please call 1300 668 370 or email us at mhwbsupport@westernsydney.edu.au.

Counselling

Free counselling is available to staff through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Students can access counselling via the Counselling Service.
