Mental Health Social Work and Contemporary Practice Symposium 2022

Thursday, 17th November 2022

The role that social workers play in delivering effective mental health care cannot be understated.

Our priority is to see better outcomes for the community, social workers and the system as a whole. To do this, social workers must continue to advocate, innovate and lead the way with contemporary practices and through the adoption of new frameworks of practice.  

The Mental Health Social Work and Contemporary Practice Symposium will explore the latest in practice theory, neurodiversity and the ongoing changes in approach to effective mental health care.  

Our keynote speakers and panellists comprise distinguished leaders in their fields spanning government and policy, academia and frontline experience.  

I am looking forward to participating in these vital discussions with you at the Symposium, and working with you to deliver positive solutions and better outcomes for everyone.
