Understanding the journey of HDRs and the mechanisms by which they can be supported through their research degree is critical for advisory teams.  This session will provide an overview of some of the issues that can arise through candidature and the University services that are available to support students and assist them in building resilience.  

The session will focus predominantly on mental health support but also include support services relating to:  sexual assault, gender and equity, migration, financial welfare and learning.

Professional staff from a range of student support services will facilitate this session. 

Participants are encouraged to undertake the Mental Health First Aid course as a follow-up to this overview session.
