Mental health in a global pandemic: community forums

  4 March 2022  Westgate Health Co-operative   |   Third party content – view disclaimer

The global COVID pandemic has created rupture and fragmentation in the community on many levels, whether it is within an individual, a family or the broader community.

These Community Forums are committed to being a platform that will promote community cohesion, providing information and connectedness as we journey together in these unprecedented times.

You are welcome to attend, either in person or remotely, all Forums or the one/s that are of particular interest to you.

Forums will be facilitated by a psychiatrist, Dr Ben Chia, with keynote speakers and a panel.
