Our MHFA Youth Advisory Committee, aided by Mental Health Foundation Australia organizing the ‘Youth Preventive Mental Wellbeing Conference’ at Deakin University on Sunday 14th October 2018 which we invite you to attend. Your presence would demonstrate, not only your educational institution’s strong commitment to mental health but also your concern for the welfare of our successful and diverse multicultural community, both in Victorian and the nation. 

The ‘Youth Preventive Mental Wellbeing Conference’ is a partnership event between Deakin University and the Mental Health Foundation Australia. Dr Nicole Rinehart, Professor in Clinical Psychology, Director of the Deakin Child Study Centre and Director of Clinical and Community Partnerships at Deakin University will host the event. Emeritus Professor Bruce Tonge, Foundation Head, School of Psychology and Psychiatry, Monash University, and honorary Professor at Deakin University is the patron of the Mental Health Foundation Australia and will provide invaluable advice to ensure the conference is a success. Both will be key note speakers.

Topics to be discussed in workshops include: Depression; Anxiety Disorders; Eating Disorders; Substance Abuse & Addiction; Gender identity Issues; Homelessness & mental health; Adjustment disorders in youth; Panic Disorders; Generational stresses; Psychotic disorders; and, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.

 

The ‘Youth Mental Wellbeing Conference’ will involve 30 secondary schools, 20 universities, 10 TAFE colleges and several private educational providers totalling 350-400 students. Topics of crucial importance to youth mental health will be discussed and a position paper, formulated from the perspective. 

It is also intended that a follow-up ‘Round Table Conference’ will be held on 28th October from 10.30am to 4.00pm to collate and refine information gathered from the initial 14th October ‘Youth Preventative Mental Wellbeing Conference’. This information will provide a unique opportunity to provide direct information to state and federal governments and other agencies to formulate policy based on the actual insights of students. A white paper is planned from this information.
