The UniWellbeing Course is our new, free, online and internet-delivered treatment Course for Macquarie University students. The UniWellbeing Course is designed to teach practical, proven, skills for managing symptoms of stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. We developed The UniWellbeing Course because many young adults have difficulties with stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. But, few people have access to or never seek treatment.

In fact, we know that as many as 50% of students experience stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. This is understandable given the demands of university life and the demands of balancing this with other responsibilities. The UniWellbeing Course is designed to help students learn practical strategies to stay emotionally healthy. We hope this Course will help students succeed at university and in all parts of their life.

What does the Course involve?

  • 4 online lessons that provide information and teach practical skills for managing symptoms.
  • Do It Yourself (DIY) Guides to help you practice those skills.
  • Lots of Additional Resources and Case Stories from others.
  • Brief weekly contact with a clinician via email and telephone (depending on the trial).

The UniWellbeing Course is delivered over 5 weeks and is designed to provide you with practical information and practical, proven, skills for managing symptoms of different types of anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. The Course aims to provide the information and skills that you would normally receive from a Clinical Psychologist. We hope it will help people to gain better control of these emotions and improve their confidence, performance and quality of life.
