Domestic Violence Does Not Discriminate
The 2017 STOP Domestic Violence Conference was held at Rydges Melbourne (CBD) from 4 – 6 December and provided a platform for a unified national voice on ending domestic violence.
The 2017 program offered an opportunity for over 300 delegates to collaborate and share strategies, projects and research related to the conference theme of ‘Domestic Violence Does Not Discriminate’. With 12 featured speakers and over 100 expert stream and workshop presenters, the program represented the breadth of topic areas and key insights of those who are involved and work within domestic and family violence.
The Resource Centre, including podcasts and PowerPoint presentations, will be available shortly for all 2017 Conference Delegates.
We are delighted to announce that the STOP Domestic Violence Conference will be held on the Gold Coast in 2018, with official dates of Monday 3rd – Wednesday 5th December.
The Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association is also pleased to announce a partnership with the Queensland Government for the STOP Domestic Violence Conference in 2018.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Conference Secretariat should you have any questions.
