Djarragun College has developed a multidisciplinary health and wellbeing centre, D Health, designed to support its students, their families and the staff. Doctors, psychologists, case managers, speech therapists and nurses provide onsite services. We also offer referrals to external services such as optometry, dental and audiology. Comprehensive multidisciplinary solutions enable students to build internal and external resources required to succeed. By extending these services to the families and staff we can also support the broader Djarragun College community. Djarragun College views the provision of multidisciplinary health and wellbeing services as core to business.

Health and Education are critically linked and D Health enables us to provide a comprehensive support plan that considers the health and learning needs of our students. This service is unique to Djarragun College. In addition to the medical services, D Health oversees the development of a health and wellbeing education framework that is embedded into curriculum of the College.
