Mental health talk in Canberra

Today I am giving a talk to scientists [mostly postdocs and grad students] at the Black Mountain laboratories of CSIRO [Australia's national industrial labs].
Here are the slides.

On the personal side there is something "strange" about the location of this talk. It is less than one kilometre from where I grew up and was an undergrad. Back then I never even thought about these issues.


  1. Thanks for a clear and motivating presentation today.

    Peter Hairsine (Deputy Chief, CSIRO Land and Water)

  2. Thank you for having the courage to speak and write about this. The dangers of poor mental health to academics (and aspiring academics) are great.
