Mental health support
The mental health support service offers support to students who are living with a mental health impairment and assists them to achieve their maximum potential while studying at The University of Auckland.
The type of support varies according to each student’s specific needs. It may involve emotional support, practical help and advice, assistance in crises, study planning, advocacy, liaison with external agencies such as key workers or networking with University staff.
Students can be seen on an on-going or intermittent basis or for assistance with specific issues requiring short term intervention/support.
Louise Pentney and Shizuka Torii are the student Mental Health Advisers. Students with mental health disabilities or illness do not need a referral to see them.
