Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that Mental Health Australia is able to invite you to join us in person, in Canberra, for the 2021 Grace Groom Memorial Oration to be presented by Former Prime Minister of Australia, and current Chair of Beyond Blue, The Hon Julia Gillard AC on Wednesday 8 December at the National Gallery of Australia.

After more than 18 months since we last gathered as a sector face-to-face, we are delighted to be able to host you at the National Gallery of Australia on Wednesday 8 December from 6pm with drinks and canapes to be followed by dinner.

As there are strict capacity limits for the venue in line with relevant ACT Health COVID-19 requirements, we advise purchasing your tickets as soon as possible. 

The Memorial Oration will be live-streamed (via Zoom) for those who are unable to attend in person due to current travel restrictions, or personal preference. We will of course miss you and we look forward to catching up in person early in 2022.

We hope to see you in Canberra this December, and we thank you all for your ongoing commitment to helping us achieve our vision of mentally healthy people and mentally healthy communities.
