Welcome to the Murdoch University Health: Counselling Service

We are here to support students through their university degree. We aim to promote student wellbeing and resilience through online and face-to-face interventions.

Settling back in this semester?

We have a variety of workshops available to help you stay on track . Our groups and workshops cover topics such as procrastination, resiliency, Stressless101, and getting through exams.

Student Wellbeing and Success Survery

A team of researchers (from the Black Dog Institute / University of New South Wales) are interested in optimising the educational experience and reducing student stress.

They would like your assistance with a short online survey!

By completing this survey, you will be eligible to enter into a prize draw (for a chance to win a $100 Coles/Woolworths gift-card), and you will also be able to download a free relaxation/study music album (created by an artist who has been involved in top-ranking films and games). Lastly, by participating, you will be eligible to complete two other voluntary surveys within the next ~six months (each with additional $100 gift-card prize draws).

Ultimately, if you choose to complete the survey, they will be able to use your valuable de-identified information to improve future educational experiences.

So, if you would like further information, or are keen to participate, please click on this link:

Your support is extremely appreciated!
