Each year, Strive holds a health advocacy conference to promote awareness about global health challenges from an individual and societal perspective. This conference gives students from various backgrounds the opportunity to use their unique perspectives to discuss and explore innovative solutions to improve global healthcare.


This year, our Conference will partner with MUHI (Melbourne University Health Initiative) and 180DC, revolving around a case competition with this year’s theme being “Alleviating the Youth Mental Health Crisis.” 

Individually, or as a team, participants will work through a case and learn more about mental health and its importance in public health. This year’s theme specifically focusses on how we can improve mental health outcomes for students from the University of Melbourne. However, this is applicable to all university students, regardless of the university attended. 
Being mindful of Victoria’s pride on being an efficient yet unpredictable lockdown state, this year’s case competition will be held in a hybrid format, with both in-person sessions (for those within Melbourne) and online sessions (for those who are not able to make it or from interstate.) 
  • Case Launch Night: 6/9/21 from 6:00 – 7:30pm 
  • Case Submissions Deadline: 12/9/21 by 11:59pm
  • Finals Night (Top 5 Submissions): 16/9/21 from 6:30 – 8:30pm

  • FIRST PRIZE: $1000
  • RUNNER UP: $350
  • 3RD PRIZE: $150 

This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved to both learn more about mental health and also contribute new insights and perspectives into this growing issue. This is open up to everyone – we welcome every faculty, discipline and level of experience. We are excited to hear from diverse perspectives!
