Depression and Bipolar info explaining the latest research in everyday English

Social Media panel at VicServ 2010 conference

I was fortunate to be a panellist at the VicServ conference, “Unfinished Business”, discussing the use and potential of social media with relation to mental ill health services in Australia.

  • Factoid from Professor Patrick McGorry (Australian of the Year) that seemed to generate a lot of discussion: Each year about 40 MCG Stadiums full of people require some sort of mental ill health service, yet only 13 MCGs will receive help of any kind.

On the panel with me were Michelle Blanchard of Inspire, Tim Reid, Joanne Spain and the panel organiser Janet Hopkins (no relation), the CEO of Lantern (formerly ‘ReachOut’).

Here’s the recording of our panel:
