2017 International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) Exchange
The 2017 IIMHL Exchange will be hosted by the Mental Health Commission of NSW from 27 February to 3 March 2017.
The International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) is a unique international collaborative that focuses on improving mental health and addictions services. IIMHL organises systems for international innovation sharing, networking and problem solving across countries and agencies. The overall aim is to provide better outcomes for people who use mental health and addiction services and their families.
The forums draw around 450 international delegates together every 16 months to exchange knowledge and new ideas in mental health leadership. The theme for the 2017 Exchange is 'Contributing lives, thriving communities'.
Registration is free for people living and working in Australia. To become a member of IIMHL and register for the Exchange, click here.
