How you can get involved
Student Minds® encourages interested students to become involved and help make a positive impact on campus. You do not need to have any previous training or experience in mental health, just a passion for student wellbeing.

Examples of roles include:
There are two types of positions available:
Executive Positions: minimum 10 hours of training and 20 hours of volunteering
Volunteer Positions: minimum 10 hours of training and 10 hours of volunteering
What do you get in return?
Volunteers receive training in mental health, event coordination and peer-to-peer communication before stepping up to lead our outreach student wellbeing programs and events.
Student Minds® volunteer program is accredited by UNSW’s Advantage Program. Students who meet the minimum volunteer and training commitment, have their contribution recognised on their Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) upon graduation.
