We all have a role in supporting mental health and wellbeing

29 October 2019

The Hon Julia Gillard AC led a discussion around the complex issues of mental health and wellbeing, with a panel made up of mental health experts and people with lived experience.

This CityTalks took place in Mental Health Awareness Month and highlighted the importance of creating inclusive and just societies that place the wellbeing of our communities at their core.

It is essential that every member of our community understands the role we can play in supporting, and importantly maintaining, mental health and wellbeing.
