Friday 8 November was the final day of MESHA (formerly The Road Home) Global Alliance Conference on Post-Traumatic Stress.
The Road Home was honoured to welcome national and international delegates to its annual Remembrance Day Breakfast. Guests were treated to a stellar panel of international and Australian experts from the Conference, who are leading the way in the provision of innovative approaches, new therapies and activities for the treatment of post-traumatic stress. The panel consisted of researchers and experts who attended the Conference, including Dr Jon Lane, Melissa S. Walker and David Wiseman. You can read more about the breakfast here.
Researchers and delegates from the Conference participated in a Global Forum, where speakers discussed brokering knowledge change, followed by a panel of thought leaders and a workshop based on collaboration and communities of practice. The forum was an excellent opportunity for delegates to consolidate their learnings from the week and adapt new and innovative ideas further in their ongoing research and practice.
To finish the day, Conference attendees enjoyed a Global Thought Leaders Lunch in the Barossa, experiencing an excellent taste of what South Australia has to offer, while they shared their highlights from the Conference.
MESHA would like to thank all delegates for attending the Conference, especially those who presented their work. It was truly incredible to see global leaders together sharing and collaborating their ideas to improve the health and wellbeing of our veterans, emergency service personnel and their families.
