Australian Rural & Remote Mental Health Symposium

Event Details
3 November 2021 - 5 November 2021

Unite with a community committed to advancing rural and remote mental health care.

Living and working in rural Australia can be a rich and rewarding way of life. However, factors such as geographic location, social isolation, and limited facilities can make it difficult for many to receive adequate mental health care.

When rural and remote mental health services are needed, they are often few and far between.

Gain practical solutions to improve mental health services in Australia’s rural and remote areas at the Australian Rural & Remote Mental Health Symposium.

This year’s symposium theme is Weathering the Storm: Reflecting On 2020 & Planning for What’s Next.

By sharing insight from research studies, industry practice and real-life experiences, the symposium aims to improve the way we plan for, prepare, and provide mental health treatment to Australians living and working in rural and remote areas.

Apply to present and share your knowledge in areas including:

  • building resilient and empowered communities
  • meaningful consumer & carer participation
  • delivering excellence differently
  • integrating and coordinating care.
