Message from the CEO: New 2020 Conference Dates

In light of the latest government restrictions, we made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Australian & New Zealand Addiction Conference. In the interest of public safety and the enforced restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we felt this the only responsible course of action.

Our team have been working around the clock to ensure a smooth transition to a rescheduled date. I am pleased to announce that the 2020 Australian & New Zealand Addiction Conference will now take place from Monday 7 – Wednesday 9 December at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa.

With the continued support of keynote speakers, concurrent presenters and our valued sponsors and exhibitors, I am confident that this event will provide valuable insight and practical tools for you to continue your work in addiction treatment, prevention and recovery.

On behalf of the Association, I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all health professionals, leaders, workers and volunteers working tirelessly throughout this challenging time. Your work is a humbling reminder of the importance of continued advancement, education and awareness for our mental health industry.

I look forward to meeting you in December and again extend my thanks to you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,
Sam Stewart
CEO, Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association

Now in its sixth year, the event has gained significant recognition in the industry as a result of its all-encompassing conference program, highlighting a range of mental, physical and behavioural addictions.
