The VTMH Monthly Seminar Series for 2018 ran from March to November with a wide range of speakers who spoke on topics including asylum seekers and refugees, the impact of gambling on the community, bicultural practitioners, structurally marginalised communities, fighting the rise of racism, complex trauma and family and domestic violence. The seminar series this year was well attended with over 250 people attending the 9 seminars.
One of the highlights of our seminar series this year was Commissioner Kristen Hilton from the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) and her presentation; ‘Working together to fight the rise of racism’. We had over 65 attendees at this seminar and her message was very well received. She gave examples of racism in the community, explained how her organisation provides aid and provided guidance to attendees on what they can do to help combat this.
In 2019, we will again be running our seminar series from March to November and more information will be available on our website early next year.

We hope to put on another year of great seminars in 2019.
