RMIT extends our thoughts to those in our community who have been affected by the recent events at our city campus.
Mental health and wellbeing is an ongoing challenge for many people in our community – classmates, colleagues, friends and family.
We acknowledge the pressures of university life are real, just as they are in the other parts of our lives, and we know the events of this week will affect everyone differently.
No member of the RMIT community should feel alone. If you are worried about yourself or someone else, please know that support is available. Counselling services have been made available on level 7 of building 80 until further notice as well as our usual support services on level 4 of building 8.
