The Frontline Mental Health Conference aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Australian and New Zealand first responders – whether you attend in person or attend virtually the content is unmissable.
The Frontline Mental Health Conference is coming up on the Gold Coast in March; and whilst you may love to join us – taking a few days away from home or finding the time in your schedule to enjoy the conference in person may not be possible.
Now we have a solution…
You can still be a part of the conference, listen to experts and connect with peers as they share stories and collectively plan for a mentally healthy sector. Simply do this by joining the conference as a virtual attendee.
In fact, as a virtual attendee you get access to the conference, all the keynote presentations and post-conference resource materials with ease from the comfort of your own office and in your own time.
As the virtual conference is running on the same schedule as the in-person conference, you can join us on the day and have plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs during the breaks or you can rest assured knowing that if you miss the conference in real time, you have access post-conference to all keynote and concurrent presentations.
Also, the virtual conference has an online exhibition where you can connect with products and services which can help make your day-to-day a little easier and improve the mental health of first responders.
Attending the conference virtually is an excellent way to hear firsthand the learnings, insights and future plans foer the sector whilst saving on registration, travel and accomodation costs.
