Mental Wellbeing

Mental wellness is not just the absence of mental illness. It is thriving emotionally, mentally and intellectually. At St Catherine's, we encourage you to give the same attention and care to developing and maintaining your mental wellbeing as you do your physical wellness.

Program streams

The Fit for Study program encompasses education, resources and events across the following streams:

Respect now and always

Respect. Now. Always. Campaign

St Catherine's College supports the Universities Australia campaign Respect. Now. Always. The campaign has three key elements: raising awareness of sexual assault and harassment issues and lifting the visibility of support services; obtaining prevalence data to guide further improvements in policies and services, and assisting universities to share best practice resources across the sector.

The College is committed to maintaining an environment where residents and staff are valued, respected and able to realise their full potential. Your safety and wellbeing is our priority. We treat sexual harassment and assault very seriously in line with our policies. 

Ally supporting sexual and gender diversity on campus

ALLY Network partner

St Catherine's College is a proud partner of the ALLY Network.

The ALLY Network was implemented to promote awareness and visibility around sexual and gender diversity, making the community safer and more affirming for LBGTI residents, staff and other community members. ALLY acts as a conduit for cultural change, facilitating our commitment to leadership in this area.
