'My time at Muresk Agricultural College [now called the Muresk Institute] gave me a solid grounding in farming practices that led to my employment with the Department of Agriculture,' says Jamie.

He is most well known for developing the industry-standard Wallis Air Core Drilling System - but since retirement has also ensured the memory and beauty of heritage railway infrastructure is kept alive for all West Australians to enjoy!

Say hi to Mallika. 👋Mallika is a psychology student at Curtin. She recently completed Managing Emotion, an online course that helps students look after their mental health.'People tend to oversimplify feelings but emotions aren’t always easy,' says Mallika. 'Managing Emotion has helped me reframe how I look at situations and how I feel.’💡 What is ‘re-framing’ in a mental health context? The essential idea is that the frame through which a person views a situation can determine their point-of-view and consequently their behaviour. For instance, some negative thought patterns that can be re-framed are ‘all-or-nothing’ thinking or a tendency to discount the positives.‘Instead of focussing on the bad, I now try to evaluate things from other angles before having a gut reaction,’ Mallika explains. ‘Reframing has been really beneficial for how I look at the world around me.'To find out more about how you can support the mental health of our next generation of students, click on the Healthy Futures link in our bio.#CurtinUniversity #MentalHealth #Support #HealthyFutures
