Event Details

An Australian psychological journal last year suggested loneliness could be Australia’s next public health crisis. Loneliness is defined as being disconnected from others and seeing one’s relationships negatively, so one can be lonely while surrounded by people. The horrifying rate of youth suicide is partly connected to loneliness.

What can the churches do to help, or what can we all do as individuals? Join Melbourne Anglican Archbishop Philip Freier in discussion with Patrick McGorry, Professor of Youth Mental Health at Melbourne University, co-founder of headspace and former Australian of the Year, and Helen Page, head of Community Aged Care for the Brotherhood of St Laurence. The discussion will be moderated by former ABC host John Cleary.
