UNE Crisis Support Line: Free, confidential and available just when you need it – Save these numbers now!
We understand that many things can happen in a student’s life – not just study, and that often the curveballs seem to come at you at the most inconvenient times (like when you have an assignment due!). At times it can be hard to cope, but we want you to know there’s support available around-the-clock for all UNE students.
UNE Crisis Line Hours:
Overnight Monday to Friday from 4:00 pm – 9:00 am, AEST
24-hour service on weekends
Public Holidays, including Christmas – New Year period – when the UNE Counselling Service is closed.
After-hours calls are answered by an experienced Crisis Support worker. They can assist you if you are experiencing a crisis or if you are with someone who is highly distressed.
Crisis Support Numbers:
Call: 1300 661 927
Text: 0488 884 169
Even if you don’t feel like you need it now, it’s a good idea to save these numbers so that they’re easily available for you should any unexpected situation arise.
The UNE Counselling Service is also completely free and confidential, with sessions able to be conducted in person, over the phone or via Skype. If you’d like to set up a future appointment with a Counsellor for personal support, or to have a Study Gym session, you can phone (02) 6773 2897 between 9am-4pm weekdays.
