With COVID being one of those consistent challenges we’ve all had to endure, unfortunately, it has also thrown up a late change to the event, with our guest speaker The Hon Julia Gillard AC no longer able to attend the event in person, due to her international flight being rescheduled and subsequent travel restrictions. We are however pleased to confirm that The Hon Julia Gillard AC will still deliver the Oration via video, after which we will hold a Q&A to reflect on the issues she has highlighted and her ideas for future focussed mental health reform. We hope you are still able to join us in person for this event, however if you would like to discuss amending your registration please email

Due to venue requirements, cancellation of (in-person attendance) tickets within 5 days of the event can not be refunded.
