Reducing anxiety and stress

Exams can be a really stressful time. If you need help dealing with stress or anxiety, help is only a phone call away.

Counselling can help you with problems like coping with study or university life, stress, anxiety and depression, loneliness, drug and alcohol abuse and addictions, negative feelings and suicidal thoughts, relationship and family issues. No issue is too big, or too small.

Where to get help

Our counsellors are offering telehealth (video or phone) consultations. If you're a Monash student, your appointment will be free.

To make a booking, call (03) 9905 3020.

You can also get counselling help after-hours.
