**Happiness and Wellbeing In The Modern World**

GEM Health and Wellbeing are proud to invite you to an exclusive four and a half hour seminar with a variety of experts sharing their knowledge and empowering us with knowledge about mental health in the modern world.

It is estimated that one in five Australians will suffer from a mental illness per year. Mental illness knows no boundaries. It crosses all lines of gender, race, religion and status. We are all susceptible. There is more to be done in bringing awareness to mental health issues and reducing the stigma. We have a generous and dynamic panel of experts in the field bringing a wealth of information, knowledge and insight to you.

Together we can reduce the stigma and open lines of communication. We are stronger together. Get ready to be inspired, informed and empowered. If you are interested in mental health then this event is for you. Signing up is easy and affordable. Hurry spaces are limited.
