It is clear there is now significant activity at the State and Federal level focussed on mapping the pathway forward – good news as we are certainly all well over the joy of Zooming. This also means we are now planning the University’s recovery route – it seems, in retrospect, to have been easier to close the campus than it is to open it up again given our shared global experience of this virus.</p> Fri, 08 May 2020 verity.chia 12067 at http://www.news.uwa.edu.au Seventh annual University Mental Health Day unlike any other http://www.news.uwa.edu.au/2020050612057/december-2018/seventh-annual-university-mental-health-day-unlike-any-other <p>This week university staff and students in Australia and New Zealand marked the seventh&nbsp;annual University Mental Health Day.

So much has happened in 2020, what with bushfires, pandemics and the state of the economy, it can be hard to focus on our mental health and wellbeing, but now more than ever it’s important to practice a little self-care.
