Symposium 2024

Wednesday, 22nd May 2024

Join us on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2024, at Novotel Sydney – Parramatta for the One Door Mental Health Symposium.

Building upon the success of previous events, this year's Symposium promises to be an enriching experience by providing the opportunity for participants to share insights and be the initial voice shaping our Research Trust Fund (RTF) agenda into enduring mental illness.

Themed From Discovery to Impact: Collaborating for New and Innovative Ways, the event will provide a platform for the people we support, including leading advocates, researchers, and practitioners to contribute to engaging discussions and group sessions. We hope to encourage participation while highlighting the importance of collective efforts in achieving meaningful change.
