Doctor on Campus (DOC)
VHHS has an innovative Doctor on Campus Program (DOC) involving a local general practitioner who specialises in adolescent mental health and consults fortnightly with students referred by Student Services. Students can see the Doctor to acquire a Mental Health Care Plan that then enables them to access our Therapeutic Social Worker for support on a wide range of issues related to their mental health. Both Practitioners consult on campus. The school is also closely linked to the Victor Harbor office of CAMHS.
Student Services also accommodates other service providers including a Child Wellbeing Practitioner and an Attendance Counsellor who uses school facilities and supports our staff and students on a regular basis.
Doctor on Campus is part of a Whole School approach to wellbeing, endorsed and supported by Mind Matters.
