The Australian Centre for Student Equity and Success acknowledges Indigenous peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. With a history spanning 60,000 years as the original educators, Indigenous peoples hold a unique place in Australia. We recognise the importance of their knowledge and culture, and reflect the principles of participation, equity, and cultural respect in our work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and consider it an honour to learn from our Indigenous colleagues, partners, and friends.

Event information

Headspace has received funding from the Department of Health Commonwealth, under the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Grant funding for a new piece of work that they are calling Headspace University Support Program. This funding will enable Headspace to deliver a support program, including education and training, critical review and capacity building of staff to build mentally healthy universities and implement postvention activities following a death by suicide.

This session aims to speak to all of the ways headspace can tailor mental health supports to the unique needs of universities and their staff and students. It will also build awareness of the guiding principles that inform postvention supports and help seeking pathways.

Presenter: Martine Oglethorpe is the Clinical Lead of the University Support Program as part of the headspace schools and communities division. With a background in education and a Masters in Counselling, Martine, along with the team at headspace, is committed to building the capacity of university staff to build mentally healthy communities for all students, and to provide best practice postvention activities.

The webinar is free to attend, and it will be live captioned.
