10 tips to help maintain mental well-being


It’s University Mental Health & Well-being Week next week! And to celebrate, Griffith University will be hosting activities across all campuses from 27-31 March.

The program includes engaging and inspiring activities to help raise awareness of the mental health and well-being of those who study and work at Griffith.

Be sure to get involved! There’s complimentary lunchtime seminars, mindfulness master classes, free massages, and snacks! Not to mention the free temporary tattoos, giant games, and cooking demonstrations.

Do any of these activities take your fancy? Check the program of events to see if they are available at your campus next week.

University Mental Health & Well-being Week was first developed by the University Mental Health Advisors Network in the UK, and now has more than 30 Australian and New Zealand universities participating.

How do you maintain your mental well-being? Griffith University Counselling and Wellbeing asked a bunch of Griffith students to share their tips for coping with uni pressure. Check out the ‘What Helps’ YouTube video to hear what they had to say.
