About this event

Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) encourages all of us to think about our mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have a lived experience of mental illness or not, and encourages help seeking behaviours, when needed. It provides a chance to promote activities and ideas that can have a positive impact on our daily lives and the lives of others. Each year, people across Queensland come together during QMHW through local events, conversations and activities.

Dr Kathryn Broadhouse researcher and physicist, will be live online, talking about brain health and the impact of stress. “We will take a brief dive into the world of neuroscience and neuro-imaging to understand:
1. How our brains learn new things
2. How stress impacts brain function and the way we learn and
3. How we can build resilience against stress.
This talk will show us how researchers use neuro-imaging to investigate brain health and how we can all stay mentally healthy.”
