Update Oct 9th 2013: Note From Dr Kathryn Berry:
It was a great honour to be a part of the Youth Mental Health Forum organised by the Psychology Society and The Rotaract Club at the University of Sydney. The enthusiasm and interest from the students was fantastic and it was evident that the topic of mental health is very much a relevant, meaningful and current concern for our youth. The awareness and healthy debate raised through the forum was certainly a refreshing, insightful and valuable experience.
