Held at the Ian Potter Auditorium on Tuesday 25 June 2024, The Florey’s public lecture ‘New approaches to mental health treatments’ brought together experts in neurobiology, drug development, psychiatry, and epidemiology to discuss treatments for various mental health conditions.

  • how lifestyle factors can contribute to mental health conditions

  • how we can repurpose existing treatments.

The lecture was delivered by Professor Ashley Bush and a panel of leading experts: Dr Thibault Renoir, Dr Christopher Draper-Joyce and Professor Anne-Louise Ponsonby. The panel was hosted and moderated by Professor Andrew Lawrence.
