Mental Health Month is celebrated each year in October, and reminds us to think about the importance of mental health and wellbeing is all aspects of our lives. This year, the theme is “Learn and Grow”, which aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues and encourage health-seeking behaviour.

The University is committed to the health, welfare and safety our students and staff. To support student wellbeing, free, confidential counselling is available to all students anytime via the Counselling Service. More information and contact details can be found at http://www.westernsydney.edu.au/counselling.  To make an appointment with a Counsellor, call 9852 5199 or email counselling@westernsydney.edu.au

Western’s MHWb Month is brought to you by the Mental Health and Wellbeing Promotions Team, partnering with Western Sydney Uni Library Service, Careers, UWSConnect Food & Beverage and the Mental Health and Wellbeing Student Ambassadors.

“Being a Student Ambassador for Mental Health and Wellbeing Month has been a great opportunity to learn and participate in the production of such fantastic event, and we’ve put a lot of effort into putting together a program that we think students will enjoy.  It can get really frantic being a student, and sometimes we can get so caught up in assessments and work that we neglect our mental health – this is why the chill stations at mental health month are so good, it’s the perfect opportunity for students to relax and take a few moments to de-stress,”
