The 2017 Conference will be held at the Conference Centre, Sea World Resort, Gold Coast, Queensland from Monday 21 August – Wednesday 23 August 2017.
This year’s conference will examine a range of issues from the perspective of Primary Interventions, Promoting Recovery, Prevention and the latest Policy Initiatives.
Mental health awareness and well-being strategies remain urgent public concerns. The Conference will focus on the range of complex mental issues affecting the elderly including depression, dementia and anxiety. It will also explore the mental health issues of young Australians and how we can influence, educate and promote change.
Mental health problems have become one of the leading causes for absenteeism from work and early retirement all over Australia. Maintaining good mental health at the workplace is therefore not only essential for the individual but also a challenge facing business and society as a whole. There is considerable business and political interest in tackling poor mental health at work.
Featuring Australia and New Zealand’s leading practitioners, academics, researchers, mental health experts, NGO’s and policy makers, the conference will motivate and inspire professionals (and future professionals). All delegates will have access to the program podcast library and Book of Proceedings included in their registration fees.
