Elder abuse is everyone’s business. Join us as we raise awareness of the problem and learn how to prevent and put an end to it. 

This year, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day coincides with the Victorian Government’s Royal Commission into Mental Health. Elder abuse and mental health are interlinked, with elder abuse having devastating psychological effects on an older person, including depression and anxiety. Join us to learn how you can take control and protect yourself, or someone you’re caring for, from elder abuse. 

Attendees are encouraged to wear purple.
