As the national university, we support communities to flourish through transformational research and education. Our research in psychological science helps advance the understanding of human motivation, experience and behaviour, and how these insights can be applied to improve people's lives.

These resources have been developed by the Culture and Wellbeing Team, led by Associate Dean and Clinical Psychologist, Bruce Christensen. They provide evidence-based approaches and offer practical tips and exercises to support wellbeing and mental health. 

Our university supports student success. Here you will find a number of initiatives, programs and resources that will support your physical, social, spiritual and mental health to help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle during your studies. Explore further information on helping our students to stay safe and secure on campus.
