    Summer Forum: Community Mental Health Systems: Human Rights and Services

    Forum, Conference

    Help shape the next 50 years in Community Mental Health Systems.  Keynote speakers include: Maree Teesson, Patrick McGorry, Barbara Disley, Peter Hawkins and Graham Thornicroft.

    After 50 years of de-institutionalisation most of the large psychiatric hospitals have either been closed or substantially downsized. It is 40 years since the first Australian research project showed that community-based care was effective and preferred by people and their families.  But are we now in danger of re-creating those institutions in the community?

    This year's Summer Forum will examine international, national and local policies, research and practice to build a picture of what is needed to enable a person with lived experience of mental health issues to attain or retain their full citizenship in society.
