YOUR MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

The 2019 Frontline Mental Health Conference was held from 20-22 October at The Ville, Townsville.

Designed for Australia & New Zealand’s first responders, veterans, defence force personnel, NGO workers and volunteers, this premiere event was a huge success. By facilitating discussion and shining a spotlight on the mental health and wellbeing of our front line workers, we will continue to provide a forum for real experiences, real challenges and real solutions.

We are currently planning the 2020 Frontline Mental Health Conference. Stay up to date by expressing your interest today.

WHEN YOU’RE WORKING IN THE FRONT LINE, WE UNDERSTAND ‘JUST SWITCHING OFF’ IS NOT AN OPTION

First responders are at high risk of developing mental health conditions linked to stress and traumatic events.

The Frontline Mental Health Conference is designed for Australia & New Zealand’s first responders, veterans, defence force personnel, NGO workers and volunteers.

Discover research, insight and treatment techniques from mental health experts, meet with fellow industry workers and unite to break the stigma of mental health for those working on the front line.
