SMC Conference & Function Centre, Sydney NSW 2000
Registration for the Conference will open on Monday 26 February 2018 on the APC2018 website.
The Australian Psychosis Conference (APC2018) aims to bring together researchers, clinicians, consumers and carers, all interested in the best possible outcomes for people with a psychotic illness. The conference will have parallel streams, covering up to the minute research, discussions on best practice and treatment and debate as to how best to encourage recovery. The program aims to synthesise what we know about psychosis, how best to treat it and how best to deliver that treatment in our society in 2018.
Australia has had an excellent record in Mental Health Research, however, our record in mental health care delivery has lagged. This conference, taking over from the Australasian Schizophrenia Conference, aims to identify the gaps and propose changes that will improve that care delivery. Bringing together researchers, clinicians, carers and consumers is the best way to develop an informed and evidence-based system.
The Conference is auspiced by the Psychosis Australia Trust, a national body that seeks to improve research and care delivery for the psychotic disorders. It will be held at the Sydney Masonic Centre in downtown Sydney. The centre has excellent Conference facilities and is close to a wide range of accommodation and entertainment options.
Prior to the Conference, a free Public Forum for Carers and Consumers will be held on Thursday 13 September in the evening.
