Mental Health SIG Symposium Wellington

July 17th & 18th

Registrations open now - close on 2 July

Hi Everyone

We would love to see you all in Wellington in July. Programme available here

Because COVID-19 continues to challenge us, all of the NZHPA SIG Symposia have been squeezed into the second half of the year. In order to fit all of the events into a few months, we have had to make some changes to the registration process. Please read the following information carefully.....

Registration Process

Registration will be processed electronically via the PSNZ website. If you are no longer a PSNZ member, your previous login details should still be active.

Because we’re using the PSNZ platform, we don’t unfortunately have a discounted price for SIG members this year. There are two price points – NZHPA member $180, non-NZHPA member $280. Please do check that you’re being charged the correct amount before submitting payment.

After registering online, you will receive an email asking questions about dietary requirements, attendance at social functions, etc. To complete the registration process, please reply to this email.

Any issues with the registration process, please email NZHPA admin at  


The symposium organisers have negotiated a reduced rate for delegates at the Naumi Hotel on Cuba Street. The rate is $145 per night. To make a reservation at the Naumi Hotel, please complete the booking form  and return it to them, as per instructions on the form. Please include NZHPA Mental Health SIG as the booking reference, and don’t forget to specify if you want a queen or twin beds.

Friday evening (not included in registration fee)

We will be having an informal get together from 5:30pm on the Friday evening. This will be in the hotel bar at Naumi Hotel. The email you receive after registering will ask if you plan to join us. Please do let us know so we can reserve enough space for everyone.

Saturday evening (not included in registration fee)

As usual, we will be meeting for dinner and drinks on the Saturday evening. Again, please reply to the email and let us know if you plan to join us.
