TheMHS Aotearoa Conference – Australia and New Zealand
Auckland, New Zealand
Theme: People: authenticity starts in the heart
Dates: 23-26 August 2016
Auckland, New Zealand will be the setting for an exciting and vibrant TheMHS Conference 2016.
New Zealand has seen major reform in the last twenty years to the way people access mental health and addiction services. As they face changes to their population, systems, workforce and the work the sector does, every part of the system in New Zealand is rethinking its approach.
People: authenticity starts in the heart aims to focus attention on all the people involved in the system – people who access services and their families and whānau, people delivering services, people who help guide and shape these services, and people in our communities.
