About this event

The last two years have been challenging for us all. In Australia, the Black Summer bushfires of 2019-20 were followed closely by the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. The effects of these events on people's mental health and wellbeing are severe and ongoing.

What has happened in the mental health sector to address these crises? Where have we been successful? What have been the greatest challenges? And how can we apply the lessons learned to the broader reform project that is now underway?

Register today for this free webinar as leaders and lived experience representatives from health, mental health and emergency services settings explore exactly what we can learn from adversity.



The full colour Learning From Adversity program is available now.
