21-23 August 2019 THE EVENTS CENTRE, Caloundra, Sunshine Coast, QLD

Starting the conversation on PTSD

A National Conference

 

PTSD IS hard to identify and treat

Why come to our National Conversation?

With upwards of a million people in Australia suffering it, and upwards of 3 million people living with people experiencing PTSD on a daily basis, PTSD is a national problem which requires a national response.

The Fearless Conference seeks to initiate a national conversation on PTSD and explore with participants how we can develop a community-owned and community-operated PTSD management protocol and what should be contained within it.
