Mental health promotion forum
Flourishing in a COVID world: promoting mental health & wellbeing in our communities
2020 was a challenging year for all of us. While Victorians showed remarkable resilience, our communities were still dealing with the social and economic fallout from COVID-19, and stress levels remained high among certain groups and communities. That’s where effective mental health promotion can make a difference.
This online Forum was designed for people who work with community. It would be of interest to both implementers and decision makers. Our speakers showcased evidence-based strategies to help you promote mental wellbeing and prevent a rise in mental health conditions in your communities. The forum included keynote presentations, panel discussions, and interactive Q & A sessions with online attendees.
