Welcome to the Mental Health Services Clinic.
The focus at our service is to enable you to achieve psychological well-being and academic success. We provide a secure, non-judgmental and confidential space in which to pursue your mental health treatment. Our clinic consists of a team of psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists whom are all available by appointment. Please note that for an appointment with a psychiatrist, you will first need a referral by a physician.
