We’re bringing community to UQ with stall holders from all around UQ and Meanjin to make it easier for you to connect with services, organisations, and opportunities to support your wellbeing.

Sometimes the biggest barrier to reaching out for support is knowing where to start. For UQ's Wellbeing Festival, we have connected with services all around Meanjin to bring health and wellbeing support and information to you with the aim of raising awareness of the many amazing supports in our community. Drop by the Community Connect stalls from 11am-3pm in the Great Court on Wednesday 12 October for the opportunity to chat to Allianz, BreastScreen, BUPA, Carers Queensland, Ethic Communities Council Queensland, FareShare, Lifeline, National Bowel Cancer Screening, ODIN Pass, PCYC, Sea Shephard, St Lucia Parkrun, UniSuper, World Wellness Clinic.

Also joining the Community Connect stalls are the services available within UQ to support your wellbeing, including the Employee Assistance Program, UQ Ally Network, UQ Health Care, UQ Healthy Living, UQ Student Services, UQ Wellbeing, UQ Wellness, and Workplace Diversity & Inclusion.
