Safety and Well-being

One should always stay alert and educate oneself as best as one can. You should always be informed about your safety and well-being, especially when you are travelling abroad.

Emergency

Australia’s main emergency service number is Triple Zero (000). You should call 000 if you need any kind of urgent help from police, fire, or ambulance services. Telstra answers the emergency service and then transfers the call and information about your location to the emergency service you request.

For Health concerns: Healthdirect: 1800 022 222. It is free 24/7 advice from a registered nurse who advises you to see a GP, manages the condition at home, and informs you to go to the hospital’s emergency department.

For Mental Health: NSW Mental Health Line: 1800 011 511. Mental health professionals handle the line to assess the urgency of your issue and direct you to appropriate local help.

The updated list of support services is on the notice board at reception.

Health

If you are not feeling well while on campus, please do not leave the Australian College of Health and management without informing your lecturers or the Student Services Manager. In the case of illness or injury, please report to the Student Services. You can also use the first aid kit available in the Student Services’ office.

Safety

No doubt, Sydney is generally safe, but it is always a plus point to take precautions while travelling. People need to be alert to become less likely to be targeted. If you feel unsafe, you can ask for help from shopkeepers or bartenders. You need to be aware of the location of the Emergency Help Points.
