Message from the CEO: Thank You For Your Support

Earlier this week we made the difficult decision to postpone a number of our 2020 events.

In the interest of public safety and the enforced restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we felt this the only responsible course of action.

Our team have been working around the clock to ensure smooth transitions to rescheduled dates. We will continue to update you every step of the way and thank you for your support during this challenging time.

On behalf of the Association, I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all health professionals, leaders, workers and volunteers working tirelessly throughout this challenging time. Your work is a humbling reminder of the importance of continued advancement, education and awareness for our mental health industry.

I look forward to meeting with you and again extend my thanks to you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,

Sam Stewart
