The University of Sydney marked Mental Health Month by bringing together health experts and Indigenous community heroes to discuss their experiences and different approaches to tackling Indigenous youth mental health challenges in the 21st century.
This Sydney Ideas event, moderated by Brooke Boney, a Gamilaroi woman and Triple J's breakfast newsreader, was a dynamic discussion inspired by personal stories of survival and courage.
The panel consisted of Joel Thompson, an Aboriginal man and a professional rugby league player who developed the Mindset Project in 2017, Mark Spinks, the Founder and Chairman of the Babana Aboriginal Men’s Group and Professor Ian Hickie, Co-Director of the Brain and Mind Centre at the University of Sydney.
