About Student Wellness
The Student Wellness Service provides a professional health and counselling service to students at a primary health care level. The service is dedicated to assisting students in making healthy lifestyle choices in relation to nutrition, alcohol, safer sex, relationships and stress management amongst others, in support of academic success.
The Student Wellness Service is involved with the prevention, early detection & treatment of all health & psychological conditions as well as the promotion of a balanced & healthy lifestyle. It provides psychosocial support & interventions to students presenting with personal, social, family and relationship challenges.
The cluster seeks to play a significant role in developing and empowering the whole student – promoting their ability to take control of their own living & learning through wellness, self-confidence, self-awareness, personal meaning and responsible citizenship.
