National Symposium on Homelessness and Mental Health 

On Tuesday 13th October 2020 our CEO Donna Stolzenberg been invited to be a keynote speaker at the National Symposium on Homelessness and Mental Health.

This Symposium aims to discuss the issues surrounding homelessness with the sector, particularly in relation to mental health.

It will explore the supports and services available to those who are homeless and require assistance, as well as what can be done to improve these services in the hope of minimising the issue into the future.

The Symposium will be a strength-based, safe and meaningful opportunity for not only leading professionals to come together and share information in a facilitated setting, but also a direct channel for members of the community to raise concerns about what they believe is needed to improve the areas of both homelessness and mental health. 

The purpose of this symposium is to gather grassroots feedback from both our community and the experts within their fields, have robust discussions and to consider this information meaningfully in relevance when developing recommendations for government submissions on behalf of our community, the MHFA & this event.
