Your wellbeing is important to us. 1 in 5 Kiwis will experience mental illness this year. If left undiagnosed or untreated, mental illness can significantly impact a person’s ability to function in addition to impacting those around them.

This informative and interactive event is a great opportunity to hear from a variety of engineers sharing their experiences, and an expert on what to look out for.

Panellists include:

  • Julie Raine, Auckland Branch Chair, will talk about her own experiences.
  • Jude Becroft, Registered Clinical Psychologist from Umbrella Health, will talk about mental health and how common it is in New Zealand, what to look out for within yourself and your colleagues, and the first steps of what to do about it.
  • Professor Rosalind Archer, Head of Department, Department of Engineering, The University of Auckland and Vice President of Engineering New Zealand, will provide information on The University of Auckland's wellbeing programme.

The panel builds on the Engineering New Zealand Foundation’s recently launched mental health resources and is the first in a series of events in Engineering New Zealand’s upcoming wellbeing programme.

Questions can be asked anonymously prior, and during the event via Slido – you'll be sent the link upon registration.

Gold coin donation with all proceeds going to Lifeline.
