Kia ora koutou katoa
Nō mātou o Emerge Aotearoa te whiwhi, nō mātou te hōnore ki te whakatū i te Hui-a-Ao tekau mātoru (13th) o Asia Pacific Mental Health i Aotearoa a te tau 2018.
Emerge Aotearoa under the auspices of the Richmond Fellowship Asia Pacific (AsPac) Forum and in partnership with key New Zealand organisations is delighted to be hosting the 13th Biennial Asia Pacific (AsPac) International Mental Health and Addiction Conference – Healthy Futures - Inspiration, Inclusion and Integration in Auckland, New Zealand on 31 October to 1 November 2018.
This conference is a forum for sharing national and international models of culturally responsive services including peer services and profiling how the voices of lived experience have created new paradigms for addressing mental health and addiction challenges. It will examine zero suicide and zero coercion strategies, trauma informed responses across health and social services and showcase ways to strengthen communities including responses to promoting positive mental
health and reducing homelessness across diverse cultural and global contexts.
We look forward to you joining us in Auckland.
Naku noa nā,
Dr Barbara Disley
Group Chief Executive
