Staff are invited to attend a videoconference on Thursday 16 October to gain a greater understanding of mental health conditions and how to provide support.
At ACU we have concern and consideration for the wellbeing of our colleagues and students, which is reflected in the University’s mission, and goes hand-in-hand with the aims of Mental Health Month.
Staff are invited to attend a video conference on October 16 to gain a greater understanding of mental health conditions and how to provide support.
Mental Health Month is a national campaign held each year which centres around World Mental Health Day on 10 October. One in five Australians aged 16-85 will experience a mental illness in any given year, which means this an issue that impacts on most us in some way - either individually, through our loved ones or in our working lives.
