ConferenceTowards Recovery Conference 2016
Abbreviated titleVICSERV conference
OtherOrganised by VICSERV, the peak body representing community managed mental health services in Victoria, the Towards Recovery conference is shaping up to be one of Australia’s most significant mental health events in 2016. At a time of significant change in the mental health system, at both State and Federal levels, the Towards Recovery conference will provide an opportunity to discuss and explore the challenges and opportunities inherent in these reforms.

This year we are focussing on hope, innovation and co-design, and how we, as a mental health community, are stronger in influencing how services are transformed when we are working together.
