Australasian Mental Health and Higher Education Conference

Issues, Challenges and Ways Forward

'Building a more resilient culture within higher education and the local community'

Our second Australasian Mental Health and Higher Education Conference (6-7 July 2018) is open to researchers, educators, students, HDR candidates, mental health professionals, consumers, carers, providers, community groups and key organisations in higher education and the broader community. The main focus is working with students, candidates and staff in higher education to improve their experiences and outcomes in higher education.

When we have good mental health, we are able to realise our abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, work fruitfully and productively, and better contribute to our community (World Health Organisation, 2014).

Our five themes encompass university policies, procedures and supports, teaching and learning practices, supporting staff in responding to complex mental health issues, whole-of-community approaches, and stigma and discrimination reduction.

Rather than a conference dinner, this year's event will have a Cultural Evening Social Activity (included in the cost of conference registration).
