It seems the whole world is talking about COVID-19. The constant barrage of news, advice about social distancing and isolation, empty supermarket shelves and talk of school closures has many of us feeling overwhelmed.
We don’t have a lot of control over the crisis, but we can choose to take care of each other by following Public Health guidelines, practising good hygiene and being mindful of our mental health.
Support for Your Mental Health
We can reach out to organisations that support our mental health during this uncertain time and encourage others to do the same.
If you feel like your mental health is being affected by this crisis, Beyond Blue offers 24/7 support on 1300 22 4636. Or beyondblue.org.au/get-support/ for online chat and email.
If you require immediate support, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 and always call triple zero (000) in an emergency.
Support for Your Career
If you require career counselling, the Career Development Association of Australia has a directory that lets you search for career counsellors.
Study Support: It’s Business as Usual
During this challenging time, we want to assure you that we can support you through your studies.
Australian Online Courses is open. We will continue to operate business as usual as our platform is entirely online.
We’re Committed to Your Studies
Our friendly Learning Consultants are focused on supporting you to continue your online studies. If you have any challenges or concerns during this time, please get in contact via Live Chat, Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone 1300 76 2221.
Are You Experiencing Financial Hardship?
If you are a current, enrolled student and are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19, you can apply for Special Circumstances.
To apply, you will need to provide sufficient documentation to support your circumstances, so that we can assess your case. Please get in contact with one of our friendly Learning Consultants to discuss your payment plans.
We need each other more than ever right now, and we’ll get through this – together.
