TheMHS 2018 Summer Forum: Trauma Matters

Thursday, February 22, 2018 (All day) to Friday, February 23, 2018 (All day)

3 reasons why you need to visit the Mental Health Service 2018 Summer Forum:

Trauma Matters
One of the many lessons from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is the powerful role that institutions and systems can have in recognising, responding and resisting the re-traumatisation of survivors. TheMHS Summer Forum 2018 will explore how mental health services can recognise and respond to trauma and show the way forward with trauma-informed care and effective, evidence-based responses that promote healing and recovery.


Each year theMHS Summer Forum addresses a different hot topic in mental health presented by expert speakers in the field. The sessions are designed to maximise information-giving by speakers as well as to encourage plenty of time for discussion with the audience. Importantly, this ideas-rich environment facilitates the fresh exchange of research-based practice and innovative ideas between distinguished delegates from within the mental health sector.

Expert Panels

Palyku woman and Commissioner for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Helen Milroy, together with Indigo Daya, of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, will lead an expert panel on ‘Setting the scene for what needs to change’ - where they will explore implications for services in light of new evidence-based approaches.
