The Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association hosts the STOP Domestic Violence Conference.

Our annual conference attracts professionals vested in ending domestic and family violence. This is a space to share research, projects and industry developments.

From lived experience speakers through to academics, our programs are diverse and inclusive. We provide a platform for all opinions, experiences and insights, to help break the cycle of domestic violence.

With support from industry partners and sponsors, we can continue to spread the word on an issue affecting thousands of Australians.

We are committed to breaking the cycle.

That is why we have sourced some of Australia’s most influential and dedicated professionals to share their experiences and ideas in the domestic and family violence sector.

To further our commitment, we will provide a Post-Conference Communique to the Australian Federal Government, providing an insight into the challenges, struggles and opportunities that have been discussed by our Conference Community.

Together, we will improve the quality of life for every individual affected by domestic violence.
