Web plenary audience 2 small


Seven hundred people attended our biennial conference which sets the standard for Australian mental health conferences providing challenging content, provocative speakers and leading-edge thinking.

It provided an opportunity to come together to showcase the latest research, share best practice, review industry trends and consider the future of mental health services within the context of an ever changing environment.Delegates and other participants' feedback was excellent overall with a high level of satisfaction with the content and logistics of the conference.

We were proud to welcome not just top level bureaucrats, influencers and change agents but also our member organisations, 22 of which were represented in the formal business of conference, whether on committees, as speakers, presenters, chairs, sponsors or exhibitors. Our members are integral to our organisation and it is only with their direct involvement that the conference can be a success.
