Call for abstracts: 2015 Service User Academia Symposium

“Creating Connections & Building Bridges Together One Step Closer” will take place on the 30th of November and the 1st of December 2015 in Auckland.

Presentations will be about any and all aspects of service users involved in mental health education and research, but this year there will be a particular focus on hearing about co-produced work – where service users and others are working as equal partners in all aspects of a mental health research project or teaching programme.

Abstracts are welcome from service users holding academic, education or professional development positions or aspiring to do so, and those (usually non-service users) who promote, support and advocate for these roles in academia and service settings. To submit an abstract please complete the attached form and send to: Dr Sarah Gordon (sarah.e.gordon@otago.ac.nz) by June 12th, 2015.
