During Mental Health Week in Tasmania, we’ll be hosting a conversation with local voices and health professionals about how we can best support each other and build resilience in our community.

The statistics on mental health, particularly in young people, point to it being the ‘shadow pandemic’ of our time. This event aims to better equip our community to deal with mental health challenges through local stories of resilience. Also how we can better assist family members, friends, and colleagues to access the support and tools they need during a crisis.

We encourage and invite local voices to share their stories and invite questions to the panel in hopes of tapping into the strong sense of resilience in our community.
