Tandem Conference

Join Tandem to explore what a world leading mental health system looks like from a family and friends perspective at Tandem 2019 Conference!

Working in Tandem: for a compassionate mental health system

One in which we can expect the same compassionate, therapeutic care that wraps around patients, their friends and families, when services are treating people for cancer. One in which mental health issues are identified early, treatment options are carefully explored, and tailored support is offered to the whole family. We believe in a mental health system that is safe, inclusive, fair and funded.

Our system must be transformed from the crisis driven one that we currently have, to one with:

  • Compassion at its core and compassionate leadership at the helm
  • No wrong door to accessing care
  • A system that recognises family and friends as a critical part of the recovery journey and consequently are entitled to respect, kindness, information and support. 

Join us as we explore what a world leading mental health system looks like from a family and friends perspective at the Working in Tandem: for a compassionate mental health system 2019 conference, followed by Tandem Awards 2019 for individuals and services who have shown compassion and family inclusion.

The Tandem Conference 2019 will be held during Carers Week on the 15th of October at the Abbotsford Convent. Register here.
