Australian Stop Domestic Violence Conference

Providing the Skills for Change

With an improved focus and awareness on the effect of Domestic and Family Violence within Australia, the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association is providing a national unified platform to discuss the strain of Domestic Violence on Australian resources and facilities. The 2016 STOP Domestic Violence Conference will be held over the 5 – 7 December at the Mercure Brisbane QLD.

With a focus on building skills within the sector, the conference will include discussion and presentations around policy, research and practice with a particular emphasis on innovative and emerging responses.

Research has demonstrated that domestic violence is a global issue of epidemic proportions (WHO, 2013) and affects all cultures, ages, genders and socio-economic groups. Domestic violence does not discriminate.
