Wellbeing is more than mental health. It is a complex combination of many factors that are strongly linked to our happiness and overall life satisfaction. Medicine & Health is committed to supporting its students to thrive and stay healthy. The faculty has a dedicated Wellbeing Officer who provides free and confidential support for students in undergraduate and postgraduate programs. If you're experiencing difficulties that are impacting your ability to meet course requirements and you need support, you can email the Faculty Wellbeing Officer, Catherine Marley.
