ADVANCING & ADVOCATING FOR NEW ZEALAND MENTAL HEALTH

The 2020 New Zealand Mental Health Conference is designed for professionals working in New Zealand’s mental health sector.

As our first event in New Zealand, we have specially selected Christchurch as the host city for our inaugural conference to best represent the country’s community spirit, unity, strength and resilience in times of trauma and recovery.

Over two days you will hear insight from a selection of influential professionals sharing case studies, insights, experiences, challenges and developments in New Zealand and Australia’s mental health sector.
