At St Mary’s College, our Wellbeing team is made up of qualified social workers with extensive experience in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children, young people, and their families. Our team of social workers provide a range of support for our students acknowledging that our social, emotional, and psychological wellbeing impacts our learning. Support can include brief intervention assisting skill development, individual counselling, group work, and crisis intervention, to name a few.
Social work is a client-centred, strengths-based approach supporting individuals to build resilience and self-determination - key elements of St Mary’s WRAP program. Social work practice is a complex and multifaceted profession steeped in seeking social justice, empowering individuals, and adhering to a strict code of ethics ensuring integrity, professionalism and professional boundaries.
Our WRAP program at St Mary’s supports our students to contribute to a more just and compassionate world, a strong correlation with social work practice. Our social workers use research and incorporate evidence-based interventions which is a valuable contribution to the wellbeing of our students, particularly through our WRAP program.
