ASCN Tri-Nations Symposium, Adelaide

  1. – 6 October 2016

Kirsty Forsdike-Young of the Research Abuse and Violence team (RAVE) attended an invitation-only event organised by the Australasian Services Care Network.The two-day symposium brought together government, providers, researchers, funders and advocates from Australia, New Zealand and Canada as well as observers from the UK, US and Europe for an active exchange of knowledge and ideas to drive practical solutions for the mental health and wellbeing of veterans, active service men and women, and emergency first responders.

The event was a success with a wealth of insight and knowledge translation achieved through multiple presentations and working groups. Collaborations were a high priority and Kirsty made a number of contacts for the RAVE team to connect with in future abuse and violence research, and intervention development.
