While the country is at Level 4 of the COVID-19 response and in a nationwide lockdown, it can be hard to maintain a sense or normalcy and routine. Here are some resources to help you during this challenging time.
Student health and counselling is still available during this period, but some appointments may be conducted by phone, Skype, Zoom or WeChat. We know this service is more important than ever and we encourage you to make use of it. Please do not go in person to book an appointment - rather - visit the health and counselling website for details about making an appointment.
All our student support services are still in operation, albeit not face to face. If you need support or have a query please explore MyHub or contact the team at Te Paepoto and they will ensure you are connected to our support staff.
The Chaplaincy teams remain available for spiritual and emotional support over this time. Their Facebook pages have valuable material for coping and for thriving both mentally and spiritually, and the chaplains remain available for conversation, guidance and prayer.
If you are well and want to safely help others during this time, consider joining your local student volunteer army to join the national volunteer response to support people impacted by COVID-19.
For support with grief, anxiety, distress or mental wellbeing, you can call or text the 'Need to talk?' service on 1737. This service is free, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and gives you the chance to talk it through with a trained counsellor.
