With a theme of ‘Becoming well together: Partnerships in mental health, Ngā hononga ō te hauora hinengaro’, the 2018 Congress will explore and examine the many interconnecting partnerships essential to the practice of modern psychiatry. The program will reach from cutting-edge bench-side science to expert knowledge developed from experience. This will be aimed at addressing the question: How do we work in partnerships to improve the wellbeing of our communities?

Presentations that show the rich diversity of partnerships in clinical practice, research and mental health are strongly encouraged from all sub-specialty and other practice areas in psychiatry.

The Organising Committee particularly welcomes abstracts relating to the broad partnerships between psychiatry and:

  1. consumers and families
  2. indigenous communities and diverse cultures
  3. others across the life course
  4. public health, policy and governance
  5. primary and community care
  6. psychotherapy
  7. social networks other disciplines (e.g. justice and law, education and training, spirituality and holistic health)
  8. neuroscience, and medicine.

The Committee is interested in opinion, analysis, qualitative and quantitative work that bring to mind the work we all do. A variety of oral presentations, posters, rapid fire sessions, symposia and workshops are encouraged relating to all areas of psychiatry, and abstracts will be considered for a range of presentation formats and themes. Papers should be clinically relevant to psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.
