Event description
Auspire invites you to join us for breakfast with the acclaimed Professor Helen Milroy this Mental Health Week

About this event

As the world currently faces its biggest mental health crisis in history with the impact of COVID-19, it’s never been more important to talk about mental illness.

Mental health affects us all, with 1 in 6 Australian workers suffering from mental illness every year and 3 out of 4 young people reporting a decline in their mental health since the start of the pandemic.

With this in mind, Auspire invites you to join us for a captivating and eye-opening talk from 2021 WA Australian of the Year, Professor Helen Milroy.

Hear from Helen, a pioneering mental health champion for children and young people, followed by a panel discussion with Commissioner for Children and Young People WA, Colin Pettit, and Chief Psychiatrist of WA, Dr Nathan Gibson.

Don't miss this opportunity to talk about mental health and how we can tackle it early on.

Professor Helen Milroy

Helen Milroy has played a key role on numerous mental health advisory committees and boards, including the National Mental Health Commission. She was also appointed as commissioner for the Australian Government’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Australia's first Indigenous medical doctor, Helen specialises in Aboriginal and child mental health, and recovery from grief and trauma.

Colin Pettit

Beginning his career as a teacher and then principal of a number of regional schools, Colin Pettit is dedicated to improving the wellbeing of children and young people. For three years, he was Executive Director Regional and Remote Education at the Western Australia Department of Education, and was the Secretary of Education for the Tasmanian Department of Education from 2010-2015. He is also a former President of the Primary Principal’s Association of WA and is Vice Chancellor of the Children’s University WA Partnership.

Dr Nathan Gibson

As Chief Psychiatrist of WA, Dr Nathan Gibson oversees the care for patients within defined mental health services and monitors the standards of psychiatric care. He is passionate about eliminating seclusion and meeting the needs of people with severe and enduring mental illness and their families.

Organiser Auspire - The Australia Day Council of WA

Organiser of Mental Health Week Breakfast with Professor Helen Milroy

We think there’s a lot to feel great about being Australian. Like our spirit of mateship and making the most of the many opportunities we’re given. As Australians, we’re known for our courage, and resilience and our passion. Most importantly, we believe in the idea of a fair go. Not just having one but also giving one in return.

We are vibrant and distinct as one of the most diverse societies in the world and we are blessed to be home to the oldest living culture on earth. And while all of our stories may begin in different places, we’re bonded by a common future that we can create together.

At Auspire, we champion inclusion, respect, mateship and fairgo and through our awards, we recognise individuals and groups who are helping build stronger, more resilient communities off the back of these Australian values.
