Keynote Speaker: Dr Murray Wright is a graduate of the University of Sydney Medical Faculty, and has worked in a range of metropolitan, rural and regional centres, as a psychiatrist, in various leadership roles, and since October 2014, as NSW Chief Psychiatrist. His clinical interests include consultation-liaison psychiatry, emergency psychiatry, psychiatric and substance misuse comorbidity, and psychiatric impairment among health professionals and police officers. In addition to his public sector roles, Murray has maintained a private practice since 1990.

Facilitator: Philippa McDonald is a senior reporter at ABC News NSW and currently covering bushfire recovery, as well as the impact of the coronavirus on regional communities. Her career has been built on breaking news and analysis on the biggest stories of our time. She has been at the centre of the media’s coverage of Australia’s worst bushfires, political upheaval, family violence, the disappearance of MH 370, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, mine disasters and coups. From medical “breakthroughs”, to the billing practices of internationally renowned surgeons, to the hunt for a serial killer, to the Royal Commission which revealed how the nation’s most trusted institutions failed children.
