How big a problem is mental health in Australia and what can be done about it?

Professor Harvey Whiteford

Thursday 12 October 1pm

More than one in five Australians experience a mental illness in their lifetime, but are we facing an epidemic of mental health problems? Prof Harvey Whiteford will examine the evidence in relation to this claim and discuss ways in which we can respond to the burden of mental illness and reduce the impact these disorders have in our society. Professor Whiteford leads a research program in psychiatric epidemiology, burden of disease, mental health policy analysis, and services research at the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research. He has worked as a consultant to national governments, Commonwealth and State governments in Australia, the World Bank and the World Health Organisation.

Venue:  Innes Room, UQ Union Complex, University of Queensland, Brisbane, QLD 4067
