    Full House at the Sex, Drugs & Other Stimulants-Memtal Health Coneference

    Let’s Talk Sex, Drugs & Other Stimulants

    Over 100 delegates from the Mental Health Industry will gather at Crown Plaza Terrigal this weekend to attend the ‘Let’s Talk Sex, Drugs and other Stimulants’ Mental Health conference, hosted by Brisbane Waters Private Hospital.

    “1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness, yet many don’t seek help because of stigma. The team at Brisbane Waters Private are dedicated to doing more for the community and helping to shed a more positive light on mental health.”

    “It is a unique opportunity to have such a large group of dedicated Mental Health Professionals together to hear selected key topics from renowned Psychiatrists from across NSW, addressing current and emerging mental health issues on the Central Coast,” says Kathy Beverley CEO, Brisbane Waters Private Hospital.

    Topics such as – The Ice Age: The Methamphetamine Epidemic; Sexual Health & Depression; and Understanding the difference between Adjustment Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; are just some of the presentations with the most relevance to the Central Coast community.

    Healthe Care Australia’s Brisbane Waters Private Hospital is also delighted that the Conference coincides with the launch of a new Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills (DBT) program at the hospital, making it the first hospital in the Central Coast region to offer the program.

    “Currently patients have to travel off the Coast to access these types of services. We are also launching a new Day Program, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a program that we know will cater to a large number of locals that currently don’t have access to those resources on the Coast,” said Ms Beverley.
