Australian Association for Adolescent Health & Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association
Youth Health Conference
'Owning Future Change'
7-9 November 2018
Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa

The premiere Australian interdisciplinary conference for young people, researchers, clinicians, health workers and educators who work to improve, promote and advocate for the health and wellbeing of young people in Australia and beyond.

This year’s conference will explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people’s health, diversity and health, and sexuality education and sexual health as its major themes. Technology, mental health, and young people with chronic illness and disability will be just some of the other streams.

Each of these areas bring challenges that require understanding the evidence, having respectful conversations and building a strong advocacy platform in order to bring about equity and improved health and wellbeing for many of our young people today. Youth participation in planning, programming and delivery is integral.

This conference will motivate, educate and showcase research, innovative programs and practical resources via an extensive and comprehensive program including keynotes, proffered paper and poster sessions, workshops and networking.
