The Bouverie Centre's 19th Annual Mini-Conference seeks to provide an opportunity to pause and reflect on challenges within the mental health sector. In 2021 we are interested in how a COVID-informed appreciation of the interdependence of human life and the importance of relationships, could inform mental health delivery.

In a "post Royal Commission" active climate change environment, now is the time to learn from the past, act in the present and begin creating the future of our mental health system. For our generation, arguably this has never been more important.

Our dynamic speakers and trialogue panel members will represent the perspectives of consumers, carers and clinicians, to bring these past, present and future challenges into vivid focus, by asking the question, How can the mental health system embrace the interdependence of human life and Focus on Relationships?
