The conference theme acknowledges that 25 years after deinstitutionalisation, people with mental illness tend to fare badly on many of the key dimensions of social inclusion: health, housing, education and employmentâ€¦
This is the â€˜unfinished businessâ€™.
The conference will focus on pathways to greater social inclusion for people with a mental illness. It will showcase the excellent work occurring across different sectors, present the latest research into what works, and point to the way forward.
The Conference Committee seeks proposals covering current and emerging research, evidence-based practice and interventions, which support people with a mental illness to participate in everyday activities in the community.
