Description

An invitation from the CORE Research Team

Since 2014, over 300 people living with severe mental illnesses, their carers and staff across Victoria have shared their stories of service experiences and recovery with us. CORE has used this information to help understand personal recovery and to facilitate services working together with people with lived experience and their carers to shape service improvements.

The CORE Forum is our opportunity to celebrate and thank all of our study participants, the research staff and all of the people who made CORE a success, and to share what we learned.

The forum will share results from the project and include presentations from consumers, carers and staff who took part. We welcome your attendance to celebrate with everyone!

Registration

A light lunch will be provided. Registration is essential. Registration closes two days prior, or when full.



Keynote speaker

Our colleague A/Prof Rob Whitley from McGill University in Canada will give the keynote address at the forum.

Rob has three main research interests in recovery, stigma and men’s mental health. He has published over 100 papers in social psychiatry, and his work has been funded by a number of Canadian organisations as well as the Medical Research Council (UK).

Rob’s current projects include (i) the creation and evaluation of awareness-raising videos for use in anti-stigma workshops run by people with mental illness; (ii) a longitudinal analysis of the tone and content of media coverage of mental illness in Canada; (iii) an ethnography of young men participating in the ‘seduction community’. He hopes one day to live in a world where people with mental illness can fulfil their potential and enjoy their full rights, free of fear and stigma.



Getting there

Drop-off

A drop-off zone is located on Genetics Lane. If you turn left off Royal Parade (travelling south), the Kenneth Myer Building will be on the right hand side. If the site is blocked by a bollard, please use the intercom on the left hand side to have this lowered. Cars can stay in the drop-off zone for 20 minutes.

There is limited street parking available. Royal Parade Car Park (beneath the Kenneth Myer Building) has all day parking for $25. Enter via Royal Parade, located between Genetics Lane and Medical Road. You cannot pay with cash at this location. You’ll need to scan your debit or credit card to enter the carpark. Upon exit, the boom gate will indicate the amount owing and you’ll be able to pay with your debit or credit card at the gate.
