The GSA is hosting a panel session for graduate students to provide a forum for discussion about the rights of students who experience wellbeing issues while studying, and to highlight the support services available in the university, how to access these services, and how to provide feedback on services. The focus for this session will be on mental health issues. We hope to begin a conversation about mental health promotion and raise awareness of the ‘safety net’ available to students who face health and wellbeing barriers to study, and who may struggle with what can be a stressful period of life.
