The second National Mental Health Summit – ‘Out of the Shed’ focuses on the theme of male mental health as Australian males are over-represented in the data on suicide, alcohol & drug related problems, violent crime and injury resulting from dangerous behaviour.

Despite this, males often don’t access available services or admit to problems until they are very unwell.
Some of Australia’s leading experts in mental health will present issues that challenge and confront, providing a range of perspectives on men and boys in the 21st century in Australian Society.

• Major General Paul Alexander, AO, Surgeon General, ADF
• Dawn O’Neil, AM, CEO, beyondblue
• Professor Ian Hickie, Director, Brain & Mind Research Institute
• Andrew Horabin, The Eldership Project
• Dr Liz Scott, Campbelltown headspace
• Peter McGeorge, former NZ Mental Health Commissioner
• Louise Earnshaw, Christmas Island Psychologist Master

Class Themes:
• Raising boys to be resilient loving men

• Rites of passage
