CONFERENCE ABSTRACTS

The Inaugural Asia-Pacific Conference on Women's Mental Health combines research, clinical expertise and lived experience in a multidisciplinary program that will spark new conversations, collaborations and progressive solutions in women’s mental health.

 

We encourage delegates to embrace the spirit of inspiration as you participate in workshops, panel discussions, breakout sessions and structured networking opportunities. Across the two days, you will be invited to exchange ideas, share experiences and engage with experts in topics including violence and trauma, ADHD, eating disorders, perinatal mental health, novel treatments and interventions, including digital mental health and brain stimulation, menopause, positive ageing and much more. 

We hope you enjoy the conference as much as the organising team enjoyed creating it.
