Embrace Wellbeing at Flinders University’s Wellbeing Week

Wellbeing Week is part of the extended Orientation program, open to everyone at Flinders. Engaging with Wellbeing Week can be as simple as taking a moment of self-reflection on how you are doing, through to signing up for multiple wellbeing-focused activities and events.

I just saw that the Wellbeing Week website has been updated 🥳It means you can start locking in activities for the 6th to 10th May focused on your personal health and wellness.


What is Wellbeing Week?

Wellbeing Week at Flinders University is a part of the extended orientation program and designed to empower students with the knowledge and skills needed to foster both their mental and physical health. This week-long event offers a range of activities aimed at promoting a balanced lifestyle, supporting mental health, and building a supportive community among students. Engaging with Wellbeing Week can be as simple as stopping by the pop-up stalls at your campus, to packing your calendar/diary with programs and events.
