Mental Health Foundation Calendar of Mental Health Month Events October 2021

ANU: World Mental Health Day panel discussion

We are delighted to be partnering with the ANU for the World Mental Health Day online expert panel discussion on Friday 8 October at 12.30-2pm AEST. I will be joining a panel with Dr Hugh Mackay AO, Associate Professor Tegan Cruwys, Dr Amelia Gulliver, and Emeritus Professor Andrew Markus. The session will be moderated by Michelle Linmore from ANU Counselling. The panel will focus on practical ways to improve mental health, including ways to ease loneliness and create connections within our community. We hope this discussion will include ways that we as individuals can cope in the current context, but also ways in which Australia might best respond to emerging mental health challenges.
