Uni Virtual Clinic

The Uni Virtual Clinic is an online place where university students can access information and tools to help with their mental health. The Uni Virtual Clinic was developed by researchers at CMHR in conjunction with the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre.

What is the UVC-Lite?

The UVC-Lite is the latest version of the Uni Virtual Clinic (UVC); an online mental health support program that has been developed and evaluated by ANU researchers since 2012. The original UVC program contained in-depth information, self-help strategies, quizzes, and recommendations on a broad variety of issues affecting university students, including depression and anxiety, coping with stress, procrastination, and perfectionism. We’ve since streamlined the UVC into the UVC-Lite, a program containing 12 brief videos containing tips and strategies for supporting your mental health at university.

What makes the Uni Virtual Clinic different to other services is that it was developed in conjunction with students. Students have helped to develop the clinic by participating in focus groups and surveys, volunteering to test early versions of the clinic, and providing input and feedback about the content and functionality of the clinic.
