By joining us at the Western Australian Mental Health Conference 2022, you will be part of an event to remember.
With a strong focus on mental health practice, underpinned by the trauma-informed conference streams - 'Safety, Trust, Choice, Collaboration, Empowerment and Respect' - we are aiming to deliver a collaborative space for learning, sharing perspectives and meaningful exchange.
Your ticket includes access to the two-day conference at the premium, iconic and modern facilities and function rooms at Optus Stadium, plus the opportunity to enjoy refreshments, supper and live music in the open air at the networking sundowner overlooking the oval as an opt-in extra - this is your exclusive chance to experience an area normally off limits to many.
Until the end of December, early bird rates will apply unless sold out prior. After that, WAAMH membership discounts will apply. Not a member? Consider joining us.
We hope you will be able to join us and we look forward to welcoming you to the Conference at Optus Stadium on 12-13 May 2022. We look forward to sharing more conference developments, keynote speakers and program details with you in the New Year.
WAAMH will continue to follow health guidelines and COVID-19 Government policy when implementing public health measures for our large public events, to help keep the community safe - this may include practical adjustments at our conference such as live streaming, social distancing, hygiene stations, mask use and proof of vaccination to attend.
While acknowledging that public health advice can change very quickly, we will endeavour to keep all WAAMH event attendees informed in a timely manner of any modifications to these requirements. WAAMH also encourages all attendees to stay up-to-date with COVID-19 requirements in WA via the State Government's latest updates webpage.
LIVED EXPERIENCE DELEGATES
If you have lived experience as a consumer, carer or family member and are unwaged or on low income, you may be eligible for a scholarship to the conference, thanks to funding assistance from Lotterywest, and administered by WAAMH. This could mean you only pay 10% of the overall cost to attend the conference and we can help with travel arrangements. You may also be able to bring your support person along with you. The conference is equipped with a calming, quiet space, the Wellbeing Zone staffed with support workers, in the event any content or discussion at the conference is distressing or triggering. Applications for scholarships close 28 February 2022 and we will endeavor to notify you whether you have been successful during March 2022.
