Student Wellbeing

Our team offers several services to support student wellbeing during your time at Massey. We understand the challenges tertiary study can bring and the importance of a holistic approach to keep you well through your journey. The service facilitates workshops, health education, skills programmes, peer support groups, medical services including doctors and nurse consultations, counselling, wellbeing advisors and online tools. Our service philosophy is based on the four dimensions of the wellbeing model Te Whare Tapa Wha developed by, Sir Mason Durie. The four dimensions of the wharenui(house) are: taha wairua (spiritual health), taha hinengaro(mental health), taha tinana (physical health) and taha whānau(family and social health). For the whare to be strong, eachtaha/side needs to be strong. The stronger your whare, the more likely you are to succeed and have a good time doing it.
