Are you interested in learning about invisible disabilities? Join our online lecture on Friday, 2 December, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm Jakarta time and gain insight into the topic with Dr Habib Forooshani from Federation University.

Over the past few decades, there has been a growing public awareness, understanding, and acceptance towards people with physical disabilities or chronic illnesses. However, when it comes to mental disabilities, there remains a significant gap in public knowledge and understanding about the unique challenges faced by people with lifelong mental disorders, including those with trauma-related mental conditions.

In regard to this issue, Dr Habib Forooshani will provide a brief overview of and discussion about some of the most misunderstood mental disabilities and the intersectionality between them and other stigmatised backgrounds. Moreover, he will touch upon practical recommendations for developing a safer and more inclusive social environment for people with mental disabilities.

The e-certificate for participation is available. If you are interested in attending this event, RSVP by 30 November at this link. Click here for more information about the online lecture and Dr Habib Forooshani.
