Share solutions to vital mental health challenges
Special interest groups (SIGs) bring together Faculty of Public Health (FPH) members who share a common interest, and empower them to create the change they want to see. The annual conference provides an opportunity for SIGs to promote their work and share their learning.
The Mental Health SIG will present the following workshops at this year's conference.
