Mental health resources and links
Balancing school, work and a social life can be stressful. Students are at an increased risk of developing a mental health issue while at uni so it is important to not just survive uni but thrive at uni. Curtin has a lot to offer to help you achieve your goals so look at how to get involved, volunteer, and commit to looking after yourself.
Keep active in as many ways as you can physically, socially, mentally and spiritually.
Keep connected to friends and family; get involved in groups you are a member of; join in local community activities.
Commit to an interest or a cause; set goals to aim for; become a volunteer; learn a new skill; challenge yourself.
