TheMHS Perth Conference 2021 – Going Virtual to Bring Us Together

It has never been more important for our mental health community to connect, learn and grow.

While the challenges of COVID-19 now preclude us from having a face-to-face event in Perth, we’ve had such a fantastic response to our Call for Abstracts that we are taking the event online.

All the things you love about TheMHS conferences will still be there – outstanding speakers, engaging content, creative sessions and yes, even networking!

We are determined to bring you the very best in a virtual conference experience and to deliver easily digestible ‘blocks’ of content. That means the conference will now be accessible to the many of you affected by travel restrictions.

We believe this is the safest, most responsible and inclusive way to bring you an inspiring TheMHS Perth Conference 2021.

So, if you haven’t already, put 9-12 February 2021 in your diary.  Watch this space in the next couple of weeks for details of the preliminary conference program and registration details.

We thank everyone, from sponsors and organising committees to delegates, for your ongoing support, and we sincerely hope that you will join us for our conference.

For enquiries, please contact us at info@themhs.org
