The Service User Academia symposium has been run annually since 2011 for the purposes of advancing the discipline of service user academia - the meaningful involvement of service users in mental health and addiction research and teaching.
The theme of the 5th Service User Academia symposium is 'Creating Connections and Building Bridges Together: One Step Closer'.
This symposium is for service users holding academic, education or professional development positions or aspiring to do so, and those (usually non-service users) who promote, support and advocate for these roles in academia and service settings
Keynote speakers: Dr Jackie Liggins (University of Auckland and Counties Manukau Health) and Professor Brenda Happell (University of Canberra and ACT Health).
