Brain with bright watercolours over one side

The Western Sydney Primary Health Network hosted the inaugural Connections Conference, a joint response to Western Sydney’s mental health, suicide prevention, and alcohol and drug challenges. The full day conference welcomed over 250 health and community sector representatives, and explored system linkages and barriers, with a view to a more connected, person-centred approach to care.

Discussing a range of topics, the event heard from guests including Professor Amanda Baker of the University of Newcastle and Professor Ian Hickie AM of the Brain and Mind Centre, University of Sydney and featured many organisations working to address the local needs of the western Sydney community. Presentations from the conference are now available online.
