Student Mental Health Services

Scope: Appoint an additional Senior Counsellor, who will supervise up to four psychology PG externs as well as providing counselling services of their own. This initiative also includes implementing MindSpot; an online mental health assessment and treatment system. Counsellors can refer patients to MindSpot, allowing them to assist more students.

Benefit: With the addition of the Senior Counsellor and the psychology PG externs, over 1000 students will be supported every year at UQ. The implementation of MindSpot will multiply the capacity of counsellors, improving student access to mental heal services.
