Student Minds

Student Minds® is the student voice on mental health: opening minds, creating understanding and connecting students with the resources to thrive. Student Minds volunteers improve the mental health literacy of students and awareness of UNSW and external mental health services through digital and in person events and programs.

Student Minds play a key role in the activation of UNSW’s mental health network: a confidential peer support network for initial contact, assistance and referrals relating to mental health concerns. Student Minds are coordinated by the Student Minds Executive who have leadership positions and are responsible for the coordination of the program.
