Welcome to La Trobe Law School’s Wellbeing Week 2016!

With the support of UniSport, we are delighted to announce that we have 150 vouchers to give away to enable students to enjoy a free swim or gym session – with exercise being a key strategy to reduce stress, and to treat mild depression and anxiety, along with a number of La Trobe hoodies.  We will be giving away prizes at every session, as well as for the funniest and most helpful wellbeing tips contributed to our Wellbeing Survey. Take a moment now to click into the survey HERE and contribute your wellbeing tips, or to suggest a wellbeing issue or dilemma for the panel to discuss at the forums.
