Innovation and Opportunity
The 7th Australian Rural and Remote Mental Health Symposium was held from the 26 – 28 October 2015 at the Novotel Forest Resort Creswick, VIC.
The symposium theme “Innovation & Opportunity”, focused on being innovative in the delivery of services and entrepreneurial in the provision of mental health services to rural and remote Australia.
The program included 9 keynote presenters, 54 session presenters, 2 panel discussion, 8 optional workshops and 13 poster presentations over the three days.
The Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association would like to thank all of those who participated in this year’s conference; the speakers who provided very beneficial, powerful and thought-provoking presentations, the dedicated efforts of our sponsors and supporters, and our committee members. Without the huge efforts of those involved this event would certainly not be possible.
We look forward to your involvement and support of the 2016 Symposium. The destination and date will be announced in the coming weeks.
