My Career, Pathways to Practice, 2016 Mental Health Practitioner Conference

The 2016 Mental Health Practitioner Conference held at the Sydney Masonic Conference and Function Centre on 6 April, 2016 included several compelling presentations and talks from speakers such as the Hon. Pru Goward MP, David Butt, Damian Edwards, Helen Sanderson, Peter Holtmann and a panel discussion facilitated by Frank Quinlan. We were also very grateful to have Gadigal Elder, Uncle Allen Madden, deliver a ‘Welcome to the Country’ speech which was very heartfelt. Lynne Malcolm, presenter and producer of ABC Radio Network show ‘All in the Mind‘, stepped up to the task of MC very well.

With over 200 attendees, the Conference focused on peer workforce. Many attendees commented that the focus on the future directions of peer workers and support workers was very informative and interesting.

Aftercare would like to say a special thank you to our conference sponsors and exhibitors, Exemplar Global, Being, BCA National Training Group, National Eating Disorders Collaboration, Better Caring and St Vincent de Paul Society.
