2021 has been a…..well……….ummm…………strange year, to put it mildly.
Well, it was kinda like 2020 but with more vaccinations and border closures and openings.
The teams at Health, Counselling and Disability Services and Oasis are busy putting together plans for 2022, myself included.
My main focus is ensuring that my habits-based wellbeing program (Healthy Habits Hub) is ready for launch in 2022. There is still a lot to build! (eeek)
With all that work happening in the background, I am going to slow things done on the blog front. You might even be slowing down yourself if your final exams and assignments are done for the year.
If there are any big announcements, I will continue to post them (for example, this news about shift to telehealth appointments for remainder of the year)
And before the year is finished, I’ll send out some Xmas and Holiday season posts and let you know about service closures and that kinda stuff.
Otherwise, I will be working in the background to prepare for 2022.
This year we have had a wealth of programs and resources focused on student health and wellbeing: Studyology, Be Well, Mental Fitness, Mindfulness for Academic Success, Mental Health First Aid, Meditation, Flinders Market, Good Vibes Experiment, Conversations Groups, Wellbeing Ambassador Program – just to name a few. In fact, we reckon, despite the challenges of COVID-19, this has been one of our biggest years in terms of the programs and resources we’ve offered.
If you’ve participated in those programs (or others), then we are super glad to have had a chance to meet and work with you this year.
If you didn’t get a chance to participate in them, never fear, they will be back for 2022. In fact, we want to bring all those programs to the forefront even more in 2022. I know the team is excited to be planning for 2022 and I think you’ll like what we have planned.
Simply stay tuned to this blog or sign up for Oasis Online.
Also in 2022, I’ll be super keen to feature more student written posts on the blog, so if you think that you’d like to try writing for the blog, let me know.
I’ll be around, working hard until the 20th December, so feel free to drop me a line if you have a wellbeing-related question.
