I enjoyed every moment and came away from the conference re-energised, and with a lot more knowledge. Congratulations on another successful conference. This was the third time that I have presented. I remain impressed with the quality of my peer presenters and the connections I make with others from the mental health sector. The conference certainly delivers on many levels. The conference was fantastic and there were a great number of presentations that were useful for our current work in Mental Health programs across the state. The workshops were excellent. It’s always great to refresh your enthusiasm for working in this difficult arena, especially when you are surrounded by others in the field that you can learn from and take inspiration from.
