Lincoln University is committed to providing support for students who are experiencing psychological issues. 

Counselling at our Student Health & Support facility typically operates as a short-term service, offering you the opportunity to actively work on issues you’re facing and learn effective strategies to support your mental health and wellbeing. 

Many symptoms, such as anxiety, low mood or feelings of not fitting in, may affect us all from time to time. However, if your issues are more persistent and affect the quality of your life, you may wish to seek some support.

Once you attend an initial counselling appointment, you will undergo an assessment, and together we can devise a tailored plan of support to suit your needs and personal preferences. 

We can offer a range of ways to assist, from self-help, guided self-help, resources and additional support services to individual sessions with a counsellor or clinical psychologist. 

We view your mental health in a holistic way, looking at all parts of your health and well-being, so we tend to make use of other support or resources on campus (and sometimes off campus as well), such as the gym, Inclusive Education, Library, Teaching & Learning or medical care if appropriate. 

Student Heath & Support is a confidential service and is person-centred, which means that we focus on your needs and goals, as determined by you. 

To make an appointment, please call Student Health & Support on 03 325 3835.  Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4.30pm.  If you call outside of office hours, you will reach a triage nurse who can link you with appropriate services.
