Health and wellbeing

TPP has a support network of people who are ready to listen, understand and help. There are many things that can impact your wellbeing and affect your study; such as academic stress, mental and physical health and alcohol and drugs. If something is affecting you, or one of your peers, please seek help. You can begin by talking to Student Support. Our staff are experienced at providing advice and guidance on a range of issues. If they can’t help you directly, they can put you in touch with someone who can.
