The Australian College of Physical Education, based in Sydney Australia, has launched with peer to peer support platform, TalkCampus, to provide students with 24/7 support via their devices, and provide them with access to a supportive global community while studying.
“We know that every student is different and that at times, everyone needs a little extra support. We wanted to introduce something that was able to support students outside of the times when our staff were available, and it’s great that TalkCampus also shares relevant and engaging resources around mental health and wellbeing that we are able to pass onto our staff and students. We recognise how impactful providing our students with an anonymous network will be, particularly for those that may be going through a tough time, or feeling overwhelmed at any stage during their studies”
A combination of peer support, machine learning and innovative design mean that TalkCampus offers students a community they can turn to to receive support with their academic anxieties, isolation and life's ups and downs. Social connection is a huge protection factor for people struggling to cope, and the platform allows students to foster instant connection online, with like-minded people, in a non-judgmental environment.
TalkCampus also provides additional tools that students can use to track mood over time, a diary and private journaling feature and many interactive resources, including guided meditations. The TalkCampus Wellbeing library is updated regularly with content relevant to both the academic year and current events.
‘We’re delighted to welcome ACPE to TalkCampus. We know that providing students with relevant and engaging online support and content is vital as we look to improve students' capacity to cope with the challenges they face and boost their resilience. Our global offering can go a long way to helping students feel connected, less alone and more hopeful about the future. We look forward to working alongside ACPE over the coming year,” said Jennifer Russell, TalkCampus Clinical Director.
