Mitch Robson

My name is Mitch Robson (Pronouns: he, him, his) and I am the Gender & Sexuality counsellor at Student Help on Campus (SHOC) in the University of Queensland Student Union (UQU). My current role is in supporting those with their mental health and also on matters pertaining to their gender and/or sexuality. I was initially attracted to working in mental health after my own personal experiences with my own mental health and also being a gay cisgender man.

I am a huge advocate and ally for the rights of everyone, especially those who may not always have their voice heard. In my 5 years of working at this university, I have found that listening to the stories of others and learning from their personal experiences to be some of the most profound and rewarding aspects of my job.
