Mental Wellbeing

Mental wellbeing is about enjoying and fully participating in life through meaningful activities and fulfilling relationships. It's about dealing with life's challenges effectively and being resilient enough to bounce back when things don't go well. Mental wellbeing is also about using your abilities and strengths to reach your full potential and feeling a sense of purpose about the things that you do.

UniSA initiatives

Our goal is to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in the workplace so that our people can be supported in the workplace while they manage their illness. UniSA's Staff Wellbeing Program offers three Mental Health modules online:

  • Introduction to Stress and Resilience
  • Understanding Mental Health Issues in your People
  • Managing Staff with Mental Health Issues (face to face seminar also available)

To access this program through the BUPA modules online,  register using a new username and password (do NOT use your UniSA password).

There are additional development and education options available that support mental health and enhance individual capabilities. See the Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit for more information.
