TheMHS Summer Forum - Choice and control: Personalising the mental health system
The Mercure, Sydney
The 19th TheMHS Summer Forum is an annual two-day educational program that highlights a contemporary topic in mental health. It will guide, challenge and inspire you. Audience discussion and participation are actively encouraged.
The drive towards a person centred mental health system changes many things - most critically the way that the system reacts to people's needs. How do we respond without losing sight of the individuals and communities in our system - clinicians, workers, consumers, managers, families and carers?
Challenged by concepts like "flexible funding", "self-directed support", "stepped care" and personalised packages", the Summer Forum will identify how mental health systems can achieve real citizenship for consumers.
