JCUMSA is dedicated to facilitating the best possible academic and social experience for all medical students, across all clinical sites. Our aim is to also create an environment which lends itself to health wellbeing. Our JCUMSA executive knows all too well how difficult studying medicine can be, especially when trying to stay physically and mentally healthy, and when balancing social and extra-curricular commitments.
Sometimes, stresses related to study, health, finances and other personal issues may become overbearing, and it is important to be able to identify when you need to seek help. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SHAME IN HAVING TO UTILISE THE RESOURCES AND SERVICES AROUND YOU. Here are some quick links and contact numbers for Headspace, the national youth mental health organisation, which provides excellent counselling and medical services for those in need.
