6th Australian rural and remote mental health conference



The conference is organised by the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association (ANZMH). The symposium will include keynote speakers, concurrent sessions and workshops that develop skills related specifically to the mental health needs of our rural and remote communities, and ways to effectively prepare mental and other health professionals to meet future challenges.

Anxiety, depression, stress, grief and other mental health problems can often occur with many rural communities being affected by environmental threats and economic downturn. In recent years we have endured severe drought, flooding, bushfires and cyclones, which puts financial stress on farming communities. Mental health practitioners need to prepare themselves, their clients and communities, to deal more effectively with future negative occurrences in rural and remote areas.

The conference themes will include:

Abstracts close Friday 1 August 2014.

Early bird registrations close Friday 3 October 2014.
