Bridging the Gaps

Australia’s mental health system is fragmented with far too many people falling through the cracks.

The government – through 2015’s mental health reforms and the recent 5th Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan – have made tackling this a top priority.

The focus is on achieving an integrated system, with a seamless transfer of care, but it isn’t easy.

The Moving Towards Integrated Mental Health Services conference will provide you with a practical guide to making this a reality.

This conference will cover:

  • Smoothing the transition from primary to secondary to tertiary care
  • Treating both psychosocial and physical aspects of mental health
  • Achieving greater integration in rural and regional areas
  • Using digital tools to better facilitate integration
