AMSA Mental Health website

AMSA Mental Health logoThe Australian Medical Students Association (AMSA) has been very active in promoting mental health and wellbeing issues in the last few years particularly.  In association with the NZ association (NZMSA) they developed the first “Keeping your grass greener” guide.  This guide has recently been updated and is available on the AMSA Mental Health site.

However, the web site and the initiative have a number of very valuable dimensions and is well worth a look. AMSA have developed training courses (Academy of the Mind), a great list of online resources, and an important humanising initiative (Humans of Medicine).

This is a really terrific initiative with medical students taking an important lead on developing resources for mental health, and a positive attitude in bringing this issue forward for discussion.
