THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
The South Australian Mental Health Commission is committed to strengthening the mental health and wellbeing of South Australians.
The Commission is uniquely placed to work in strong partnership with people with lived experience and their carers, the community, service providers, government, non-government and private organisations, industry, clinicians, and academic institutions. The Commission also works across government agencies including housing, health, education, employment, justice and disability.
The Commission released the SA Mental Health Strategic Plan 2017-2022 in late 2017 and is now coordinating the implementation of the Plan.
The Plan sets the strategic direction for building a resilient, compassionate and connected community that takes a whole-of-person, whole-of-life, whole-of-community and whole-of-government approach to building, sustaining and strengthening the mental health and wellbeing of South Australians.
In all its work, including the development of the Plan, the Commission ensures people with lived experience of mental illness, their families, friends, loved ones and carers are central to conversations held across metropolitan and country South Australia.
The Commission also ensures SA has a strong voice on the national level and the SA Mental Health Commissioner Chris Burns CSC represents South Australia when the National Mental Health Commission and state Mental Health Commissions meet.
Other key tasks of the Commission include engaging with the mental health sector and the community to promote the sharing of knowledge on mental health issues and breaking down the stigma associated with mental illness.
The University of South Australia (UniSA) is a globally connected and engaged university helping solve the problems of industry and the professions. Our teaching is industry-informed, our research is inventive and adventurous. We create knowledge that is central to global economic and social prosperity. We are Australia’s University of Enterprise. The University of South Australia has a longstanding history in the delivery of allied health education, offering a broad range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees, and graduating over 12,000 allied health practitioners. Our allied health clinics have also treated more than 12,000 South Australians since 2012. In 2017 UniSA was proud to partner with The Road Home to launch the Invictus Pathway Program to harness the power of sport to support the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of our returned service men and women. The program has grown significantly and provides a unique, student-delivered, exercise-based wellbeing program for veterans and first responders, involving multiple allied health student-delivered assessments (i.e. psychology, physiotherapy, podiatry and exercise physiology) to screen for performance issues, injuries and safety regarding participation in exercise. Exercise science and clinical exercise physiology students, under the supervision of expert professionals, apply allied health information to collaboratively develop goals with the participants and supervise training in UniSA’s world class facilities. In addition to helping participants with their physical and mental injuries, the Invictus Pathways Program provides research opportunities and a rich and rewarding, interdisciplinary learning opportunity for UniSA exercise science and Allied Health students.
The Police Association of South Australia is recognized as one of the most influential trade unions in Australia. Commonly applauded for its professionalism, progressiveness and innovation, it represents the industrial interests of sworn SA police officers and cadets.
Established in 1911, the association is the oldest police union in Australia and has, in its time, served tens of thousands of police officers.
At the heart of its mission is to negotiate the best possible enterprise agreements for, and to protect the industrial entitlements of, its members.
The association also lobbies governments and campaigns on issues with a direct impact on its members – issues such as recruiting and return-to-work legislation.
Among other critical tasks the association undertakes is the preparation and delivery of written and oral submissions to state and federal commissions of inquiry.
While association membership is voluntary, the union enjoys a participation rate of 98.5 per cent and is an affiliate member of the Police Federation of Australia.
Operating out of its Carrington St building in Adelaide for almost 60 years, the association takes direction from an executive committee elected by the union membership.
The president, who leads the organization, and the secretary each serve in a full-time capacity on leave without pay from SAPOL.
Another 10 committee members, including a deputy president and vice-president, serve in an honorary capacity, and all are serving police officers.
The association employs an industrial team, media and publications specialists, and administration staff.
It also owns the Police Club and has both a website and Facebook page.
