UQ Wellbeing - Health, Culture, Connections

About UQ Wellbeing

UQ Wellbeing is a Health Promotion Project for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities. It is a new initiative that stems from the goals of UQ's Student life Plan 2018 - 2021. The project aims to increase the overall health and wellbeing of students from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds by working in partnership with students. 

What is health promotion?
Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health. It’s about looking after important aspects of overall wellbeing, including healthy eating, mental health and physical health. 

The project is guided by a student advisory group and has 4 focus areas:

  • Mental Health
  • Healthy Relationships and Reproductive Health
  • Nutrition and Physical Health
  • Community and Cultural Connections
