COVIDSafe

The health and safety of our students, staff and community is our priority.

Following the Victorian Government announcement, regional Victoria is currently in lockdown scheduled to end at 11.59pm Thursday 2 September.

Looking after your mental health amid the pandemic is extremely important.

Whilst many of our students have adjusted to remote learning this year, new COVID restrictions may place further stress on our students.

Diversitat can provide access to additional services to support students in many ways:

  • Online learning support
  • Financial support
  • Mental health support
  • Housing support
  • Family violence support
  • COVID information in specific language

Student Support is available Monday to Friday 10am-3pm.

t: (03) 5246 9600

e: elizabeth.young@diversitat.org.au

You can also speak to your trainer and they will organise for our student support team to get in contact with you.
