TEST

Reconciliation Week Cocktail & Fundraiser

31 May 2018

In 2016 Macquarie University developed and released a ten-year Indigenous Strategy to commit ourselves to improving access and participation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at our University. Our RAP continues to compliment the Indigenous Strategy and further show our commitment towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.

Our long-term reconciliation vision is to be a University characterised by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander excellence, and which has established models for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander success; from undergraduate pathways through to higher degree research and beyond. Macquarie University’s commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities includes producing the highest quality outcomes in all areas of teaching and research as well as the recruitment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff. The RAP is a tangible demonstration of Macquarie University’s commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and Communities.

This event will be held as a celebration to mark the 2nd year of Macquarie University’s RAP. It will celebrate Macquarie’s achievements towards reconciliation to date, as well as the achievements of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal staff that are contributing to Indigenous excellence at our University. The event will also raise funds for Aboriginal student scholarships.

The Next Frontier: How technology can help prevent anxiety, depression and suicide

31 May 2018

In recent times we’ve seen technology dramatically affect almost every aspect of our lives. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case for improving our mental health.

To see what the future holds for mental health and technology – join us for a unique event where you’ll hear from Distinguished Professor Bradley Schmidt, the Founder and Director of the Anxiety and Behavioural Health Clinic at Florida State University.

As a world-leading expert in anxiety and related psychopathology, Professor Schmidt will discuss some of the reasons behind the slow adoption of technology and reveal new techniques that have the potential to reduce the large public health burden posed by anxiety, depression and suicide.

This is a rare opportunity for parents, teachers, researchers, policy makers and those experiencing mental health problems to gain great insight into how technology can be harnessed for more tailored preventative treatments, targeting factors that cut across a range of mental health conditions.

Professor Schmidt is conducting an associated clinical workshop entitled “Intervening on Interpersonal Risk Factors for Anxiety, Depression and Suicide” on Friday 1 June.
