The Fit for Study framework aims to reinforce the link between good health and academic performance and to encourage greater understanding of health promotion.
UWA's health promotion is conducted by the Health Promotion Unit in the Medical Centre. The team conducts health promotion activities across several health areas with a focus on Alcohol and other Drugs, Mental Health and Sexuality, Sexual Health and Relationships. We work to ensure UWA students are Fit For Study while undertaking their selected course at UWA.
Alcohol and other drugs
- Tertiary Alcohol Project (TAP) is designed to reduce risk-taking behaviour associated with excessive alcohol consumption by university students.
- Stress Less aims to raise awareness of issues that cause stress and anxiety among university students, and break the stigma associated with mental health issues.
- Mental Health First Aid training enables you to learn how to recognise and provide support to others who may be experiencing mental health issues.
- Sexuality, Sexual Health and Relationships Education (SHARE) aims to increase the knowledge and skills of UWA students around the topics of sexuality, sexual health and relationships and make them more aware of, and comfortable in accessing, the related on and off-campus services available to them.
International Student Health
- A series of International Student Health and Wellbeing Fact Sheets are being developed to assist international students to understand the health system in Australia and keep healthy while you study.
- Volunteering with the Health Promotion Unit can give you hands-on experience in the development, implementation or evaluation of health promotion projects and programs.
We have a wide range of resources on a variety of health topics including alcohol and other drugs, sexual health and mental health.
Print material can be used as an important tool to support people in taking control of their health and being informed consumers.
