Join us for the RANZCP Advocacy and Networking night focusing on community mental health services to debate equity and access to mental health care. In the 21st Century, mental health services need to deliver holistic care. This requires reforming the model of care to an integrated, person-centered approach that is based on patient's clinical and social circumstances, with tight coordination across primary, secondary, and tertiary care providers.

Too many people are waiting too long without the help they need, and there is a lack of funding to deliver preventative care. The neglect of community mental health services leads to increased complexity and severity of illness, increased risk of suicidality, greater burden on the health system and economy, and less resilient communities. 

The RANZCP NT Branch advocates for shifting the balance of mental healthcare provision in the NT from hospital-centered (emergency department (ED) and inpatient units) treatment to more community outreach, community-centered and mobile services, with in-reach to hospital when necessary. 

Time: 6pm - 8pm followed by supper in the restaurant.
