The 10th October is World Mental Health Day.

It is the one day of the year to focus on your mental health and the world.

The day is a reminder to all of us that mental health is a critical component of a rewarding and satisfying life.

We don’t have anything planned for the day itself, but the following week (the week starting the 15th October), Ali (from OASIS), myself, and some of the wellbeing ambassadors will be travelling around the campuses – Main, Sturt, Tonsley and Victoria Square distributing free stickers and some mental health focused materials (e.g. self-care guides).

The stickers all have images from nature on them. Here’s a sneak peak of a couple:


Why nature stickers?

Well, one purported contributor to poor mental health is the disconnect from nature we experience, living in urban industrialised settings.

These stickers are about bringing a little bit of nature inside with you. Stick them on your books or folders or filing cabinets or laptops or phones. They are a constant reminder of the beauty that can be found outside, and hopefully a trigger for you to visit outside more often.

To get your free nature stickers, visit us at the following:


Wednesday 16th October

Sturt from 11.30am to 1.30pm
