BALANCING THE SYSTEM
There is widespread acknowledgement that in order to address the increasing pressures on mental health services across Australia and New Zealand to improve quality of life, we need to balance the mental health system through investment in prevention and community support.
To achieve this, we need to bring the clinical and the community together in a more substantive and coherent way.
Public mental health systems are experiencing significant and ever-increasing demands on acute and clinical bed-based services.
This not only represents challenges to outcomes for individuals but also brings into question to sustainability of the current model.
This conference will explore how communities can come together and make a balanced system a reality.
