POLICE PERSONNELS' MENTAL HEALTH SYMPOSIUM

 

POLICE PERSONNELS' MENTAL HEALTH SYMPOSIUM

20 October 2021, 10:00am - 12:00pm (AEDT)

Virtual event

 

Police officers can experience a range of challenging situations and although working within the Police force can be rewarding, the interaction between personal life stressors and the demands of working within policing can result in the development of mental health struggles. Through this forum, the MHFA seeks to further explore the mental health of police personnel through constructive and open discussion in order to make a meaningful difference.

Join us as we discuss this important topic. All attendees will receive a Certificate of Participation.
