Fun Student Events (that also exceed your student wellbeing compliance requirements)
Wellbeing takes a nose dive when you’re struggling to get a job without networks, or start a business without know-how.

I Just Need A Job!
With the costs-of-living skyrocketing, critical incidents are tragically heading in the same direction.
And with careers teams prioritising final year students, undergrads needing to find casual work are getting cast aside.
The pre-recorded ‘I Just Need A Job’ Program creates pathways for students to set themselves apart as proactive and confident, rather than just another online resume in the pile.
Delivered as an optional bolt-on to the 10 Minute Confidence Program, from $2/student.

More than words - art therapy
Included in the upcoming Federal Government’s Best Practice in International Student Wellbeing Guides, the Creativity for Wellbeing program does more than create pretty pictures… creates a safe space for students to express emotions that words can’t, through a series of full- and part-day creative art events, to explore themes as diverse as:
– connection (to self / others / place / country)
– teamwork & collaboration and
– innovative thinking & what it means in the workplace.

First Aid for Mental Health
ICARE is our student-friendly alternative to first aid for mental health.
Rather than talking diagnoses, we look at what drives weird behaviour, what stops (and encourages) safe mental health conversations and simple, powerful ways to start discussions with someone you’re concerned about.
“A subject that in the past has been boring and over the heads of our young people [mental health first aid], you treated with enthusiasm and in a non-clinical and fun approach from the angle of how people ‘tick’, being more relevant to our student leader teams.”
