Health and wellbeing
Curtin has a campus-based physiotherapy clinic and a medical centre where you can see a doctor, occupational therapist, psychologist, counsellor or social worker.
Our counselling service team can provide professional, confidential help and support with any issue affecting your life or study.
Experienced wellbeing advisors are available to help you settle into university life, and provide caring support to all students with study or personal concerns.
At Curtin, we have a multi-faith chaplaincy service, which can connect you with local faith communities. You could also choose to join on and off campus associations or social media groups to meet with others who share your beliefs.
Jade Weary, Marketing and Advertising
Growing up I was an ‘ordinary’ teenager with no health concerns. My struggles began in 2013 when I failed to meet my expectations to succeed, and I crumbled when I fell short. At the age of 20, I suffered a mental breakdown, which lead me to being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 1: a mood disorder with extreme mood swings, from depression to mania.
It’s been just over two years since I was diagnosed and I haven’t let it stop me from living. I still have hard days where I’m trapped in my blanket fort, but I’ve also experienced many opportunities that I wouldn’t have dreamed possible.
