 Mental Health SIG Symposium

I can advise that we intend to hold the NZHPA MHSIG Symposium on both days of the weekend of 17 and 18 July.  As previously, we will be showcasing presentations through Saturday and into Sunday afternoon to facilitate travel.

We have great local (NZ) presenters with interesting presentations for you, and are keen to hear from anyone interested in presenting; case presentations and reports on new activities are always welcome.  A schedule will be posted as soon as we have the necessary approvals, I can say we will be hearing about subjects as diverse as new advances with oral ketamine for depression and other indications from the primary researcher, more on extra-pyramidal side effects, and the next generation illicit chemicals creating harm among our people.

We are keen to have people attend in person, because the fellowship is at least half of the attraction, and we hope a Trans-Tasman bubble will allow our Australian friends to chance a visit also. 

Further information will be posted as soon as we have it available.
