3 Good health and well-being

Sustainable Development Goals

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around good health.

Are you a new student? Do you need vaccines and serology for your degree?

Book an appointment with the nurse to discuss mandatory vaccine and serology requirements for your degree. All initial course immunisations must be seen by the nurse in the first instance, who will then organise an appointment with the doctor.

Influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations

The annual influenza vaccination and current COVID-19 booster continue to be the most important measures to prevent influenza, COVID-19 and their complications. Influenza and COVID-19 booster vaccinations are available from Health and Medical Services at Gold Coast and Nathan campuses. Please contact your preferred location to book an appointment.

Drug and alcohol support

Dealing with alcohol and drug concerns on your own can be difficult. The Australian Government provides assistive services and treatment options via ADIS, including online self assessment tools and 24/7 phone support.

Sun safety

It's important to slip, slop, slap all year round in Queensland, but now that summer is upon us, the need for caution is even higher. Check out all the ways you can be sun smart if you're going to the beach or staying outdoors for long stretches of time.

Mental Health Nurse

Our Mental Health Nurses can assist with stress management and help you cope with the pressures of life and uni.

Beat smoking

Stuck on quitting? We can help. Learn about the short term and long term benefits quitting smoking has on your body, and receive personal guidance through Griffith's own Smoking Cessation program.

Sexual health

Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are common and increasing in Australia, including Queensland.

Keep yourself safe, healthy and sexy with regular testing, protection and correct sexual health information.

Griffith offers sexual and reproductive health-care services including information, education and treatment through our service.

Griffith's Online Health and Wellness Centre is a portal designed to increase student awareness and understanding of mental health concerns.
