School counselling service

The NSW school counselling service contributes significantly to student wellbeing in NSW public schools by providing specialised psychological assessment, counselling and intervention services.

As well as having a specific role in providing psychological services, the school counselling service contributes to student learning and wellbeing outcomes through membership of school based learning and support teams.

Every student from pre-school to Year 12 in NSW public schools is able to access the service.

The School-Link Memorandum of Understanding (PDF 1079.05 KB) provides a framework for a collaborative approach by the department and NSW Health to improve the mental health of students (Note: This resource does not currently meet WCAG 2.0 accessibility requirements.
