RAPID HIV & Syphilis Testing without the full Q&A
We've partnered with Queensland Positive People (QPP) to host a free RAPID HIV and syphilis testing clinic every Friday 12noon - 4pm at the SHOC, St Lucia offices.
The service is open to UQ students, staff, international students, students under the age of 18 and Medicare ineligible students on a drop-in basis. The non-invasive tests are performed by trained community members and require just a small finger prick to receive results in 20 minutes or less.
Currently SHOC does not have the capacity to provide counselling support. If you are looking for counselling services then you can call Student Services on 3365 1704. Additionally, your GP may be able to create a Mental Health Treatment Plan for you, or you can contact your local Headspace Centre to come and see someone there.
Mon - Tue (8am - 4pm) Morrison Hall Rm 233.
