Expertise Events partnership to bring mental health to the forefront of events

Expertise Events has partnered with the Black Dog Institute to raise awareness of mental health issues and offer practical support at the majority of Expertise Events’ shows this year.

“It’s a proud day for our team, as a family business we appreciate and understand the challenges people faced over the last 15 months and as we emerge out of the pandemic, it’s crucial people understand they are not alone and we all can make a difference,” said Gary Fitz-Roy, managing director of Expertise Events.

“The Black Dog Institute aligns with our values of making a difference by doing something about it.”

Each presentation from The Black Dog Institute will always be a little different, with the program made to adapt and relate to different community groups.

“We are really excited to be partnering with Expertise Events to expand awareness around mental health issues,” said Karen Elliff, director of funding and partnerships at Black Dog Institute.

“Our partnership will no doubt help build positive mental health skills and start important conversations from those who need to reach out for help.”
