Having depression is like walking through mud every day.

So, on Friday 5 April 2019, join us in taking a walk in someone else's shoes for just one day and wear Gumboots to UCOL. Find the donations gumboot and drop in a gold coin donation that will go towards free and timely counselling for children.

Gumboot Friday is mental health campaign championed by Mike King. All donations collected by UCOL will be donated into the Kiwibank Gumboot Friday account. 


Wellbeing support for UCOL students

Your physical and mental wellbeing plays a big part in your success in the classroom. Each UCOL campus has a specialist staff member who can provide assistance, or refer you to organisations that support physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
