Mental Health Awareness Month
This October, check in and connect with each other through fun events, activities and practical resources that help put your mental health and wellbeing first.
During Mental Health Awareness Month, we work to educate students about the importance of mental health and provide resources and support for those struggling with mental health challenges. This observance aims to encourage open conversations about mental health, increase access to mental health services, and promote understanding and empathy for those affected by mental health conditions.
The theme for Mental Health Awareness Month this October is #MentalHealthAlly encouraging active support and advocacy for individuals who are dealing with mental health challenges to create a supportive environment.
There are over 50 free events throughout Mental Health Awareness Month across all campuses.
Run by students, for students, connect with us on social media.
Short on time? There are online programs, apps and resources you can keep coming back to.
9 - 13 October
The Student Health and Wellbeing team will be in the Hub Central from 9-13 October encouraging students to share a personal story with us, anonymously. The Stangers Project is a powerful installation to promote mental health allyship and encourage meaningful connections among the University of Adelaide community. There will be FREE coffee and prizes for all participants!
