TheMHS Annual Conference
Join us for the 27th TheMHS Conference in Sydney, Australia.
Dates: 29 August - 1 September, 2017.
Venue: Hilton, Sydney.
Abstract submission deadline has now been extended to Monday 13 March.
Mental Health services across Australia and New Zealand have undergone unprecedented change over the past 10 years. Over the next 10 years we anticipate even more. Adherence to the principles of recovery and recognition of lived experience as key to mental health reform are expanding the range of choices beyond traditional illness management.
New models, new funding, new providers and the voices of people with a lived experience have informed us about change, innovation and different approaches to collectively improve our systems of mental health support.
Embracing change through innovation and lived experiences is a theme that enables new directions and conversations which are based on building on the extraordinary strengths we find in individuals, families, and communities.
With thanks to our hosts for 2017:
Sydney Local Health District, Inner West Sydney Partners In Recovery (IWSPIR); and Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC)
