Youth Mental Health from a Population Perspective

10 February - 9:00am - 10 February 2020 - 5:00pm

Come along to this symposium on Youth Mental Health in Wellington on Feb 10th to hear the latest national and international data on youth mental health trends and the current thinking on what's driving them.

We will look at mental health as a community issue and a policy issue, and consider: how can we make Aotearoa a place where it's easy for young people to be mentally healthy?

Keynote speakers include:

Dr Margreet de Looze (Utrecht University, Netherlands), world-leading researcher on youth trends 

Emeritus Professor Tony Jorm (Univeristy of Melbourne), distinguished expert on building community capacity for prevention of mental disorders
