Young minds matter... Australian Rotary Health would love you to join us at his year’s Mental Illness Forum and networking cocktail party to thank our Rotary Clubs and donors for their support, and allow researchers and clinicians to network and discover more about ARH research grants.
Every year 1 in 5 Australians suffer a mental illness, with suicide being the biggest killer of young Australians. Through research, we hope to change these figures.
Our key note speaker Associate Professor David Lawrence (Principal research fellow in the Graduate School of Education, UWA) says mental disorders are among the most common and disabling health conditions affecting children and adolescence today.
“Young Minds Matter" surveyed over 6,000 families with children aged 4-17 years around Australia. We examine how mental disorders impact children’s development and learning, and what types of help children need, and receive,” Associate Professor David Lawrence said.
You can help continue the conversation about mental health by attending the Lift the Lid on Mental Illness: Young Minds Matter forum. Those who attended last year found the event inspiring, and we hope that you will encourage other Rotary members to attend, with you, this year. Those who could not attend last year missed a great event, and we hope that you will attend this year.
