Why I Believe in Change on Sunday 8 October 2017 at 4pm is a free event, however, it's important to register as tickets are limited. The event will be held at The Cube, ACMI, Federation Square, Flinders Street, Melbourne.
You'll hear four leading Australians speak about how they faced and overcame mental adversity and went on to thrive. An Olympian, a former child soldier, a traumatised police officer and a struggling entrepreneur all had one thing in common. They all struggled with mental health challenges. Be inspired and moved by their stories about how it is possible to recover from mental health issues. This event is part of Believe In Change, a public campaign to defeat the stigma associated with mental health, and it's hosted by the Australian Psychological Society as part of Mental Health Week (8-14 Oct 2017) in Australia.
The APS is the largest professional organisation for psychologists in Australia, representing more than 22,000 members who draw on a range of evidence-based approaches to help people overcome their diverse challenges to lead happier, healthier and more meaningful lives. Believe in Change in the APS's campaign to encourage Australians to seek the help that will help them overcome adversity of any kind and go on to thrive.
