Journalist Jess Hill, author of the book See What You Made Me Do; Power, Control and Domestic Abuse, will be the keynote speaker at the Southern Melbourne Area Family Violence Forum on 28 November.
Monash Health’s Family Violence Mental Health team has been working with SECASA and other partners as part of the Southern Melbourne Integrated Family Violence Partnership, to put together this event for professionals working in the fields of family violence, mental health, social work and alcohol and other drugs.
Jess Hill is an investigative journalist who has been writing about domestic violence since 2014. She has also been a producer for ABC Radio, a Middle East correspondent for The Global Mail, and an investigative journalist for Background Briefing.
The day will also feature a presentation from Family Violence Lived Experience Advocate, Cathie Oddie, and a performance from the SaSSing Choir – a group of women who have experienced domestic violence and wish to support this cause.
The forum will be held at the Dandenong Civic Building on Thursday 28 November during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
