Young people need to be properly engaged to think about broader mental health issues.

The interactive exhibits have been co-curated with young people by leading artists.

They are held @ Science Gallery Melbourne, which is part of a network of STEM-focused galleries around the world. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education is increasingly critical in the modern world.

Opening on 15 June, MENTAL: Head Inside, the first exhibition to be presented at Science Gallery Melbourne’s new purpose-built gallery, will reflect a range of different perspectives on mental health.

In the exhibition, science, technology and art come together to showcase stories and experiences from across the mental health spectrum.

It will feature over twenty projects from local and international artists and research collaborators, each challenging  societal stereotypes surrounding mental health and reflecting different ways of being, surviving and connecting in the world.
