Bipolarlife HOPE SEMINAR: BETTER OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS

THE 2019 CENTRE FOR MENTAL HEALTH HOPE SEMINAR:
BETTER OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS

The 2019 Annual HOPE Seminar will feature an evening of talks from Swinburne’s Centre for Mental Health sharing the most exciting and hopeful research on improving outcomes for people with serious mental disorders.

This year’s seminar will be hosted by Sophie Scott (ABC News) and will feature three talks: • Improving quality of life in bipolar disorder using online therapies (Speaker: Professor Greg Murray)

  • Understanding the link between biology and behaviour (Speaker: Professor Susan Rossell)
  • Improving delivery of recovery-oriented services in serious mental illness (Speaker: Professor Neil Thomas)

Following the presentation, the audience will be invited to join a Q&A roundtable discussion with the speakers.

Preceding the seminar, we also invite you to join us for the Centre for Mental Health showcase and some light refreshments. Researchers will be available to chat to guests about the innovative research they are doing in Swinburne’s Centre for Mental Health.

Community organisations will also be available to talk to audience members about their work and support groups.

Please join us to wrap up Mental Health Month on an exciting and hopeful note! .
