The three campuses of Advance College are now open with all students returning to classroom learning. The wearing of face coverings (masks), constant hand hygiene and physical distancing remain in place.

Additional COVID-19 Mental Health Support

For some, the current restrictions due to COVID-19, can lead to negative impacts on our mental health including increased uncertainty and anxiety, reduced motivation and social isolation.

The Federal Government has announced there will be 10 additional Medicare subsidised psychology sessions available between August 7 and 31 March 2021, to anyone in areas impacted by the second wave of COVID-19. Information can be found here.

If you, or your child, would benefit from this support, please speak to your GP about obtaining a Mental Health Care Plan. Many psychologists are offering consultations via Telehealth under the current restrictions.

Young people (age 12-25) can access the usual services of Headspace on 1800 650 890, or KidsHelpline (ages 5-25) on 1800 55 1800.

Please feel free to contact the school if you would like to speak with: Julia, ACE Clinical Psychologist

Stay home, stay safe, stay well and thank you for your support.
