Monash University is hosting a panel discussion on Australia’s significant health challenge: Mental Health on Wednesday 25 November 11.30am - 12.30 pm. See more about the event below.
The Australian Bushfires, COVID-19 and the economic downturn have led to high unemployment rates and reduced social connectedness. Clinicians are reporting a spike in demand for mental health services in private practice, hospitals and helplines.
Monash is committed to building resilient minds and creating a genuine improvement to mental health treatment and care.
Join us for a one hour panel Q&A session to hear how Monash University is driving innovations to build a stronger and more resilient community.
