Mental Health Conference Funding Program
The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing funds the Mental Health Conference Funding (MHCF) Program to provide limited financial assistance to support conferences and events in related areas. This Program is managed by the Mental Health Council of Australia on the Department’s behalf.
The purpose of the MHCF Program is to both promote the involvement of consumers and carers at mental health themed conferences and events, and support the delivery of those events with a mental health clinical/professional focus.
