Healthy Futures – Student Mental Health

One in six university students in Australia have considered suicide in the past 12 months.

Curtin researchers are refining a predictive tool that identifies students at future risk of suicide so they can be given the urgent assistance they require.

We need your help to support healthy futures for our students.

We remember the 645 men onboard HMAS Sydney who lost their lives, as well as those on the Kormoran.In the image below, our researchers look on at a 3D reconstruction of the shipwrecks of HMAS Sydney and HSK Kormoran.
