WELLCON 2021

Mental health is more important than ever before and one of the best ways we can improve mental health outcomes on campus is empower students to look out for one another.

Arc and UNSW Health Promotions wanted to bring together all of our student volunteers, ambassadors, and leaders, as well as those students passionate about mental health and wellbeing to learn from each other and experts in the field.

With over 3 hours at WELLCON students uncovered the secrets to caring for themselves, unlocked their ability to care for others and workshopped the ways we address mental health at uni.


Check out the live artwork created by Devon from Digital Storytellers that covers all the good stuff that our guests spoke about. From perfectionism, to suboptimal thinking, we've got your covered!
