Mental Health Day, Tuesday 1 May 2018
 
Next week there will be a strong focus on mental health at ANU. Kicking off with University Mental Health Day on Tuesday 1 May (see event details here) and ending with the annual ANU Mental Health Symposium on Friday 4 May from 11am-1pm.  The event on Tuesday will include multiple activities across campus including a free BBQ lunch and activities on Chifley Meadows. This will be open to staff and students so feel free to come along and take some time to think about your mental health.
 
On Friday the symposium will be based around the question of 'How much impact can academics have on student mental health?  As well as hearing from a leading researcher in this area Dr Chi Baik from the University of Melbourne there will be opportunity to ask questions of a panel of representatives from across the university including our new Provost Professor Mike Calford. Register for the event (and a free lunch) here.
