I will be hosting a free community health forum on depression in partnership with local mental health advocate, Cheryl Paradella, of Beautiful Minds, on Wednesday 3 July 2019.
The aim of the forum is to help raise awareness and connect people with local services on this important public health issue.
The forum will feature Dr Aliza Werner-Seidler from Black Dog Institute and speakers from headspace Campbelltown and South Western Sydney Primary Health Network. A range of local services providers will also be present at the forum. The event will also include a question and answer session.
One in 20 Australians are affected by depression each year. The World Health Organisation estimates that depression will be the number one health concern by 2030.
The forum will be held at the Greg Percival Community Centre, corner of Cumberland and Oxford Roads in Ingleburn, on Wednesday 3 July 2019, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm (doors open from 6pm for refreshments and information stalls).
The event is free, however, bookings are essential.
