2019 Australia and New Zealand University Mental Health Day

What is University Mental Health Day about?

University Mental Health Days were originally developed in the UK by University Mental Health Advisors' Network, with an overarching aim to raise awareness of the mental health and wellbeing needs of those who study (students) and work (staff) in higher education. The initiatives take a whole-of-campus approach to promoting health and wellbeing in the university setting

With the continual demands on our time and increasing commitments, we often neglect our mental health and wellbeing. With mental health issues affecting one in five Australians every year, events such as this serve a good reminder that practising self-care can be an important step in maintaining a balanced wellbeing.

Due to COVID -19 on campus events were suspended for 2020
