2018 Partners & Exhibitors

Proud Gold Partner 2018

The Queensland Government  is pleased to partner with the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association for the STOP Domestic Violence Conference in 2018. We are committed to creating a Queensland free from domestic and family violence and have invested $323.1 million over six years to implement recommendations from the Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland report.

We cannot address the challenges of domestic and family violence alone. The Queensland Government is looking to all sectors of the community to be our partners and work together to eliminate this form of violence. For example, Queensland Health has developed a toolkit of resources to raise awareness among all health workers across the public and private sectors and provide guidance on responding to domestic and family violence disclosures. The resources further support clinicians across a range of areas, such as maternity services, emergency department and mental health, to apply a sensitive inquiry model to identify and respond to domestic and family violence.

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way society and our service and justice systems respond to domestic and family violence. This Conference supports the Queensland Government’s long-term strategy designed to drive social change across our community.
