Mental health awareness and wellbeing has never been more critical.
Leaders at all levels of the public sector need to put mental health ‘on the table’ — to talk about it, invite others to talk about it, and work actively to develop resources and plans for their staff. This is the only way forward in reducing mental health stigma while increasing confidence, productivity and overall wellbeing.
Join a distinguished panel of senior leaders who will speak about their professional and personal mental health experiences: Dr Steven Kennedy PSM, Secretary of The Treasury and IPAA ACT President; Professor Patrick McGorry AO, Executive Director of the Orygen Youth Health Research Centre and Professor of Youth Mental Health at the University of Melbourne; and Professor Pat Dudgeon, Chair of the Australian Indigenous Psychologist Association and Director of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project and the Centre of Best Practice in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention. Dr Ashley Hay, Editor of Griffith Review, will join the panel discussion, exploring the importance of knowledge transfers and their work improving and strengthening the public sector and the outcomes for the Australian community.
The panel discussion will be chaired by Alison Larkins, Commonwealth Coordinator-General of Migrant Services at the Department of Home Affairs and IPAA ACT Deputy President.
