The Our mob, our minds, our spirit conference 2011 was held at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle from 12-14 October. The theme for this year's conference was 'What hat are you wearing today?' which sought to explore the many roles Aboriginal workers undertake in their employment, their community, and their family. The presentations and workshops covered a range of topics related to social and emotional wellbeing, with many reporting on programs and projects, ways of working in the social and emotional wellbeing area, and skill building for workers.

The HealthInfoNet ran an internet cafe on day one of the conference, represented by Belinda Urquhart and Michelle Catto. Belinda and Michelle, along with Christine Potter, also conducted a workshop for conference delegates. The workshop demonstrated the various features of the HealthInfoNet website with a particular focus on the social and emotional wellbeing section.
