Ipswich Hospital Foundation (IHF) will hold its inaugural Gala Dinner to celebrate 25 years of service at Ipswich Civic Centre on Saturday, 22 April this year.

Partnership opportunities and tickets are now available to support the event and help raise funds for Mental Health initiatives and research in the West Moreton region.

Tickets costs $220/person and includes a 3-course dinner, drinks package, entertainment, speeches from guest speakers and network opportunities.

Scott Young, CEO of IHF said, “From the primary care data for West Moreton Health, Mental Health was the highest recorded condition among all ages. This is an important health issue across our local region and one which needs increased support.

“The IHF Gala Dinner will help raise much-needed funds supporting mental health initiatives and research in our region and benefit the local community. It is going to be Ipswich’s event of the year! You don’t want to miss out and tickets are limited!” said Mr. Young.

Dr James Kesby, researcher at the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research will be attending the event as a special Guest Speaker.

Dr Kesby received a scholarship through IHF to complete his PhD research on mental health from 2006 to 2010. He is now working at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) and focusing on the neurochemical control of behaviour, particularly that involved in psychosis, schizophrenia and addiction. He investigates ways to improve the long-term outcomes for people with schizophrenia by studying decision-making skills.
