NCSEHE: Proactively supporting students’ mental wellbeing - Guidelines and recommendations
To support you in taking a proactive approach towards mental health as you prepare for the next university semester, a concise set of Guidelines for staff and Recommendations for universities have been developed.
During 2019–20, Dr Nicole Crawford conducted a major NCSEHE Equity Fellowship project, On the radar: Supporting the mental wellbeing of mature-aged students in regional and remote Australia. The research identified a variety of factors impacting students’ mental wellbeing, both within the context of their daily learning and interactions with their university course, curriculum, peers and staff, and outside of the university environment. While the target group for Nicole’s research was mature-aged university students in, and from, regional and remote Australia, the guidelines and recommendations are transferable to other groups.
