The RMIT Student Mental Wellbeing Champions Program is for students at RMIT who are interested in contributing to student mental wellbeing initiatives and becoming a champion for mental health and wellbeing at RMIT.

  • University Mental Health Day
  • R U OK?Day
  • Mental Health Month

All champions will have access to free professional development and training opportunities including Assisting Others in Distress, Mental Health First Aid, advocacy & leadership training, and more.

What does the role involve?

  1. Providing advice, insight and consultation to the RMIT Mental Wellbeing Initiatives team to support responsiveness to student mental health and wellbeing needs.
  2. Contributing to planning and facilitating a range of outreach events focused on a wide range of student mental wellbeing needs.
  3. Co-developing and promoting mental health and wellbeing campaigns.

What is my commitment?

All champions must attend a half-day training workshop (the week of 25 July 2022) and attend monthly meetings.

The initial commitment is until December 2022. Students can continue into the 2023 group if they wish.
