|Toll free numbers to call when you are in distress
Events on campus and the rest of the country can be tumultuous at times. If you have been exposed to trauma of any kind, we encourage you to consider getting support from a counsellor. If you need help determining whether you (or someone you know) may need counselling, this self-help guide may be useful.
You can arrange to see a UCT counsellor by contacting the Student Wellness Service on 021 650 1017 (weekdays). Alternatively you can contact the Trauma Centre for Survivors of Violence and Torture on 021 465 7373.
For students who, for whatever reason, cannot access the Student Wellness Service and need to see a counsellor urgently, e-mail Ian.Mackintosh@uct.ac.za with your name, cell number or other contact details. Dr Mackintosh will then arrange for a counsellor to contact you.
UCT's organisational health and wellness office offers counselling for staff. For more information or to set up an appointment, contact Ashley Taylor on 021 650 2154 or email@example.com.
