On 6 & 7 August 2015, Elena Sutcliffe represented BEING as a guest at the NSW Official Visitors Annual Conference.
This year’s theme was ‘Right to Care’ and the focus was on understanding more about the experiences of people with substance use disorder when they access mental health services.
The conference was a valuable opportunity to learn about the developments in this field. Presentations were given on topics such as: the roles and interactions of different substances, current public policy discussions, changes to the NSW Mental Health Act 2007, Care Planning, and substance abuse and recovery.
