The Melbourne School of Population Health and the Centre for Youth Mental Health are seeking experts to join an online panel assisting with a research project. The aim of which is to develop guidelines for organisations on how to prevent the development of common mental disorders (such as depression and anxiety) in employees.
The 2012 Comcare National Conference will be held on the 19th-21st of September at the Sydney Convention Centre.
The theme is Build, Connect, Support – Lead the conversation, and the overall focus is on mental health in the workplace and incorporates sub-themes of broader wellbeing.
