Talking mental health with Rowena Ball


Professor Rowena Ball from the ANU Mathematical Sciences discusses strategies she uses to nurture her mental health and wellbeing.

Talking about how you manage your own mental health and wellbeing can feel daunting, and it’s something we all put on the backburner. But instead of shying away from these conversations, staff at the ANU College of Science are sharing what methods work for them.

Rowena’s message to others about mental health is to know that you are valued and that you and your work are recognised and appreciated. Her main message is that having meaningfulness in life is most important.

Active listening is something else she has found improves mental health and wellbeing.
