The number of Australians experiencing mental health problems in rural and remote areas is estimated to be comparable to major urban centres. However, the rural and remote community faces a greater challenge with limited access to mental health services and support.
The Symposium theme, The Practitioner's Voice, seeks to give voice to those practitioners who are faced with these challenges on a regular basis. Abstracts are sort for the following streams:
The Practitioners Voice
Rural and Remote Challenges: resources, professional development, employment
Working in Partnerships: practitioners, consumers and carers
Recovery Oriented Practice
Cultural Engagement: working with Aboriginal people
Resilient Communities through Natural Disasters
Mental Health Youth Services
e-Health, Technology and Social Media
Abstract submission closes on Friday August 1st.
