New Professors Talk

The University of Newcastle is proud to present its new professors through a dynamic public lecture series, 'New Professors Talk'. 

This series introduces you to the new people in our community and shares the knowledge and expertise of these leading commentators and thinkers. 

In August, in addition to our regular New Professors Talk in Newcastle, we will also hold our very first New Professors Talk on the Central Coast.

Professor Sally Chan

Rethinking mental health 

There is no health without mental health. Professor Sally Chan believes the human mind is more important than the physical self; an approach that has defined her career in mental health research.

Mental health is not just about recovery and treatment, but about justice, the rights of individuals, and being treated with dignity. Sally will share her journey through the changing paradigms in mental health care over the past two decades and explore how her research has improved outcomes for consumers, their families and carers.

Before joining UON as Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery, Sally held academic appointments in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, China and the UK. Her multi-national research collaborations have established her as an outstanding global nurse academic.

Date: Wednesday 30 September
Venue: Newcastle Museum, Honeysuckle
Time: 6.15 for a 6.30pm start
