The University of Sydney’s Executive Director of the Brain and Mind Research Institute, Professor Ian Hickie, invites you to attend a forum focusing on sustainable mental health services and collaborative frameworks to maximize social and economic participation of those with mental ill-health.
Our comprehensive program will showcase innovative clinical research programs that aim to enhance mental health service delivery. It will also focus on building effective partnerships to bolster mental health policy and service delivery in NSW.
The first part of the forum is focused on youth services and will also launch a key new partnership, the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Optimising Early Interventions for Young People with Emerging Mood Disorders. The second part deals with e-health services, which represent one of the new big opportunities in mental health. The third part deals with the state and national service reform agendas – and the extent to which these developments will result in major changes to meet the needs of those directly affected by mental ill-health.
The aim of the forum is to:
Support the development of the mental health reform plans of the Mental Health Commission of NSW;
Inform the national review of services being conducted by the National Mental Health Commission;
Inform development of State and National mental health policy;
Inform development of State and National policies that support social and economic participation across the lifespan;
For further detail please refer to the attached program.
Please join us as we take the important next steps to improve opportunities to translate research into positive patient outcomes for those with mental ill-health.
