About the conference

The conference aimed to develop, strengthen and support WA’s mental health sector and wider community, so we can work better together in the interest of the community’s mental health.

This event provided collaborative opportunities for people with lived experience, clinical staff and non-clinical mental health workers; offering the chance to share resources, perspectives and best practices.

Content covered practice issues such as:

  • Addressing stigma and discrimination
  • Co-occurring issues, including alcohol/drugs, neurodevelopmental disorders and psychosocial NDIS
  • Peer workers and building the lived experience workforce of the future
  • Looking after our workforce: recruitment, retention and skills development
  • Supporting and empowering those who care for others
  • Equipping community and workplaces with mental health practice skills and strategies for all
