Here at Flinders, our counsellors provide a time-limited (6 sessions max per year) support service for students who are struggling.
Commonly, students who seek out our counselling service need additional mental health supports, for example, to receive treatment for specific mental health conditions.
Now there is an additional mental health support option available in the community. It is called Links To Wellbeing.
Links To Wellbeing is a free mental health service with no waitlist and seven locations across central and Southern Adelaide. You can get up to 12 sessions in a year, and they have a multi-disciplinary team of psychologists, social workers and mental health nurses.
Links to Wellbeing offer a range of services that target clients “across the spectrum of needs”, which means they have something for those suffering mild to moderate mental health problems, through to those suffering chronic or severe problems.
How do I access this service?
There are a number of ways to access this service
- Book an appointment with your GP, or one of ours and discuss a referral to the service. A mental health treatment plan is necessary to receive more than a couple of sessions, so this is the best place to start
- Book an appointment with one of our counsellors and discuss a referral to the service. Talking with a counsellor can help you understand whether Links To Wellbeing might be a good option for you.
- Contact Links to Wellbeing directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 08 8326 3591. They will be able to give you advice on what services they offer, and what you need to do (e.g. get mental health treatment plan from GP) in order to access the service.
