Mental Health Symposium

South Western Sydney PHN held its first ever mental health symposium and services launch on 11 September, 2017. This event was attended by 140 people including community, consumers, carers, NGO’s, LHD and commissioned providers.

The event featured key presentations by Dr Ian Hickie and a facilitated panel discussion led by TV personality Gretel Kileen. The event also marked an opportunity for attendees to learn about all of the new services the PHN Mental Health team have recently funded and the many ways they can assist people living with mental health issues. It was evident on the day that all attendees, stakeholders, presenters and commissioned providers have a commitment to constantly improving primary mental health in the South Western Sydney region.
