Seminars & workshops

After the success of our special School of Public Health Seminar held at Wacol last September, our colleagues at the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research will again be hosting us for the September seminar this year.

You’re invited to attend our open seminar by Professor Harvey Whiteford’s Policy and Epidemiology group. Our research focuses on three main areas

Psychiatric epidemiology and burden of disease research

  • determines the prevalence, distribution and risk factors for mental disorders
  • estimates the mortality and disability from mental disorders

Mental health services research

  • models and evaluates service system interventions for mental disorders
  • develops measures of service performance

Mental Health policy analysis and research translation

  • explores the use and impact of mental health research findings
  • improves performance of the mental health sector through evidence informed policy development

Come and hear about our latest research. Afternoon tea will be provided after the seminar. There will be great mingling and networking opportunities.
