2017 Searchlight Dinner BOOK HERE BUTTON 2
Searchlight places the spotlight on ground-breaking research at Eastern Health. This year’s Searchlight Dinner puts the spotlight on mental health.

Mental illness touches all of our lives at some stage, whether directly or indirectly.

Today, nearly one in two people in Australia will experience mental illness in their lifetime.

In any one year, one in five Australians will experience mental illness.

This includes one in four young Australians who will deal with mental illness at some point.

Help us raise awareness and funds for mental health research

Join us on Tuesday 31 October at the Plaza Ballroom, and be part of a magical heart-felt night.

This is a terrific opportunity to rub shoulders and mingle with over 400 leading medical, research and community members, whilst raising funds for a very worthy cause.

So book a seat, buy a table, bid on an auction item, or pledge a financial gift - your support will help benefit people living with mental illness.
