Mental Health Month Banner

Mental health is not a one-size-fits-all. It's about discovering what works best for 'me'.

This October, UNSW is supporting you to put the ME in Mental Health with free events, workshops and resources for students and staff. We have a full list of events and resources for you based on the '5 Ways to Wellbeing' - five simple and effective ways to improve your psychological and emotional health that are based on extensive international research.

Join us from 10 to 29 October 2023 to Connect image-20230919020521-1, Be Active image-20230919020705-3, Keep Learning image-20230919020752-4, Be Aware image-20230919020602-2 and Help Others image-20230919020812-5. 

The events highlight the importance of prioritising your mental health, not only during the month, but throughout the year. Register now!
