A new approach to mental health in universities | Conrad Hogg | TEDxUWA

The mental health and wellbeing of university students has deteriorated over the last decade. Conrad discusses why this might be happening, and how university communities can work together to help students to be mentally healthy and succeed during their tertiary studies. Conrad is the 2019 President of the Student Guild at The University of Western Australia, where he completed his Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) at the end of 2018. He studied cancer medicine, pharmacology, and French at university and has a strong interest in health and well-being. Throughout his term as Guild President so far, Conrad has taken a focus on student mental health, participating in an international working group on student mental health, and implementing new initiatives at UWA.
