Laura Kampel and JH Venter, clinical psychologists at the University of New South Wales, flew all the way from Sydney to be at the inaugural Global Student Living Conference in Leicester back in 2018. With half of Australian students experiencing moderate to severe distress, but only 1 in 6 seeking help, they brought expert psychological insight into issues driving student wellbeing issues as well as frontline experience in dealing with it.

Additionally, they shared some of the resources co-created with students to help raise awareness of mental health issues, as well as helping out those that were struggling themselves.
