Article from: Inspiring Australia
The CRC for Mental Health appears in the December 2014 Inspiring Australia newsletter, an update on the Federal Government national strategy for science engagement. The article highlights the importance of the community engagement events run by the CRC including, ‘Not just one thing : art, science and schizophrenia’ and ‘Science & Dementia’, in generating discussion and awareness of mental health issues. Inspiring Australia’s Program Manager Simon France commented that the events created “sustainable demand and product for science engagement,” with over half of the initially funded projects continuing beyond government funding.
