Through our educational opportunities, we facilitate face to face and online relationships between those vested in progressing the mental health industry.
We advocate for equal accessibility, continued best practice and improved mental health services, for both workers and consumers.
By providing opportunities to learn more, gain practical skills and unite, we aim to empower all members to create great change in their communities. We believe all members have the power to make a difference.
We want all members to share their insight, experience and developments in mental health through alliances, partnerships, contributions, feedback and active involvement in our annual events.
