e-Mental health conference

e-Mental health conference

Implementing and disseminating e-mental health interventions*

Monday, 27 February 2017

Australian Hearing Hub
Level 1, Lecture Theatre
16 University Avenue
Macquarie University 

One of the main benefits of e-mental health is greater accessibility to services for those in need. As a result, evidence based e-therapy solutions are becoming a greater focus for the treatment of emotional disorders across the life span. 

You're invited to participate in this one day, free event, which will explore what is currently being offered in the way of e-mental health interventions, methods for effectively disseminating e-mental health beyond research centres, and what the future holds for this cutting edge area of research.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
