Join together for a day of discussion, presentations, and practice support around understanding neurodiversity and how to support neurodivergent consumers in the public mental health system! 

The CMHL is pleased to offer a full-day online conference for psychologists working in the public health sector on understanding neurodiversity and supporting neurodivergent consumers in the public mental health context.

The online conference is a single stream conference with invited keynote speakers who will present on various topics aimed to support psychologists in using neuro-affirming practices with consumers attending public mental health services. The online conference is most relevant for psychologists who have limited to some knowledge and confidence in working with neurodivergent consumers.
