World Mental Health Day seminar: Mental health in the workplace


Join AUT as we celebrate World Mental Health Day on Tuesday, 10 October, 2017. This year the focus is on mental health in the workplace. Join us to hear the latest from a thought provoking line-up of leading mental health experts.

Professor Max Abbott
Dean of AUT’s Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences, Professor of Psychology and Public Health, former president of the World Federation for Mental Health, founding national director of the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

At this annual event, we draw awareness to the World Federation for Mental Health’s goal of taking mental health out of the shadows, so people feel more confident in tackling the stigma, isolation and discrimination that continues to plague people with mental health conditions, their families and carers. It also provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and others interested in mental health issues.

Come and learn more about mental health in the workplace and help us highlight an increasingly important health issue worldwide.
