Other Support Services

Sometimes counselling is not the right support for where you're at right now, or you may need additional supports alongside counselling. Either way, there are a range of supports students can access both within MTU and outside of MTU. Below is a list of several of these services. Just click on the name of the service to go to their webpage. Alternatively, contact us in Student Counselling and we'll signpost you to the correct support for you.
