Through our work with female international students, we know that female international students can face particular barriers to their health and wellbeing while in Australia, including barriers to their sexual and reproductive rights. Through a student placement program with Occupational Therapy students at Monash University we have developed a new resource to help newly arrived international students adjust to life in Victoria. The work on this project was featured in an article for Meld Magazine.
You can also watch two videos below, produced by the Mind Your Mind project, which has great information and a welcome message to future international students!
