On Friday 25th May we will be holding a School of Mathematics and Physics joint colloquium on the important topic of mental health and well-being for scientists, followed by afternoon tea. Our own Professor Ross McKenzie will discuss some studies relating to depression, anxiety, and procrastination; and also talk about some of his own mental health struggles and what he has learnt about prevention and healing. A representative of the UQ Mental Health Strategy team will also make a short presentation.


All staff and students are encouraged to come along.
