Mental Health Reform Webinar Series


Mental Health Reform

Exclusive Webinar Series

In recent years we have seen a dramatic increase in community awareness and discussion of mental health. Similarly, mental health is near the top of the agenda for policy makers both within jurisdictions and nationally. There is a recognition of the need to invest in mental health and to develop systems and services that are fit for purpose. The attention being directed at mental health has been influenced by many factors, including a Royal Commission in Victoria, a national Productivity Commission inquiry, the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing public awareness.

To help organisations address these challenges, Deloitte is hosting a series of webinars that will explore mental health workforce, governance and funding, and implementation and change management.

Upcoming webinar:

Webinar 2: Mental health reform: governance and funding

In celebration of Mental Health Week 2021, please join us for the second webinar in our Mental Health series which will be a Q&A-style webinar where we will explore funding and governance challenges and possibilities, while focusing on practical ideas and implementable solutions. The panel will feature leading funding and governance experts who will explore topics such as system stewardship, lived experience leadership, clarity of roles and responsibilities, intra-and inter-organisational governance and funding model options.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the incredible work Lifeline's frontline mental health workers are doing. More people are turning to Lifeline for support more than ever, and every 30 seconds, a person in Australia reaches out to Lifeline for help. You can show your support and make a difference by donating to Lifeline today.

This is a session not to be missed – register today!
