About the event

 

This event, held in 2019, brought together authors and speakers from across Australia - and from right here in Toowoomba - in conversation about mental health and how it affects us, our families and our community. It was an opportunity for Emma to say 'thank you' to her home community, the one that ensured Child Writes, Boogie Books, Love a Little Love, Live Writes Share and most importantly, The Child Writes Fund continues to thrive in.

We welcomed you to join the conversation, with sessions covering nearly every aspect of mental health. From young people to retirees, from home to the workplace, there was a session to suit everyone, and then we filmed it - so you can watch in a quite space of your own.
