2020 TheMHS Conference
Balancing the System
Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
25 - 28 August 2020


Calling everyone who works in the mental health sector and wants to share their work!

The 30th anniversary of TheMHS us upon us and 2020 TheMHS Conference is taking submissions of abstracts. If you have something you'd like to say about the landscape of mental health in Australia or New Zealand, if you work with a service or program, or are a clinician who sees potential for change, put your abstract in for a chance to present in Perth, Western Australia in August, 2020.

The theme is "Balancing the System", which acknowledges a long history of mental health services not providing well for those with mental ill-health. However, as time progresses and attitudes evolve, it becomes clear that the way forward is to work toward systematic change.

As pressures increase on bed-based services, the need to invest in prevention and community support becomes more evident. The 2020 TheMHS Conference aims to bring the mental health community together in order to increase positive outcomes for people with mental ill-health and it is recommended that speakers pinpoint areas for change and provide directives in order to achieve these outcomes.
