    Mental Health Summit to address rising community concern over mental health disorders.

    Doctors, health professionals, politicians, and members of the emergency services will come together in October to discuss the increasing prevalence of mental health issues in the Central Coast and Hunter regions of NSW. Presented by Healthe Care, Australia’s largest privately owned private hospital group, the purpose of the summit is to promote awareness and provide education to boost wellness among sufferers.

    Healthe Care CEO Steve Atkins, believes the summit comes at a time when many community members are searching for answers. “Based on the number of patients admitted in our mental health facilities, we can see that the prevalence of mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder and drug and alcohol addictions has steadily increased in recent years. General Practitioners are feeling the strain, community members are concerned and emergency services are increasingly responding to situations arising from these mental health conditions.

    “The Healthe Care Mental Health Summit aims to bring these community groups together to raise awareness and provide education that may lead to increased wellness for sufferers. Top Psychiatrists from our mental health facilities across the country will address the summit with the aim of providing some of the answers the community has been searching for,” said Mr Atkins.Healthe Care has 16 Private Hospitals across Australia, including Brisbane Waters Private, Gosford Private, Toronto Private, Maitland Private and Mayo Private Hospital at Taree. Most Healthe Care facilities offer mental health services for both inpatients and day patients.

    The summit, being held at Kooindah Waters, Wyong, will commence with a charity golf day on Friday October 9 (featuring Australian professional golfer Andre Stolz) , followed by dinner and silent auction and continue on Saturday October 10, with the conference.
    All proceeds will be donated to Black Dog Institute.
