NZUSA releases study on tertiary student mental health.
The Kei Te Pai? Report surveyed nearly 2000 students on their lived experiences in relation to mental health. The study is the first of its kind on tertiary students’ mental health in New Zealand.
‘We know that mental health is a serious issue among our students as it is in society. This research gives us a better understanding of why student mental health issues occur and the implications of this.’ - Jonathan Gee, National President (pictured left)
Our Executive have had a busy first half of the year settling into their roles here at OUSA. They’ve been balancing a number of projects and initiatives, and representing student views on a vast number of committees and working groups. Each quarter, they reflect on their roles and report on what they have been up to - have a read through each of the first quarter reports and if you have any queries or comments make sure you get in touch!
Other ways to have your say! OUSA hold two referenda each year, each has three stages; a call for questions, followed by a student forum to discuss the questions and then the voting period. Our next referendum will be open soon, where you’ll have the opportunity to put forward a question, whether on university policy or wider student-related issues.
