4 - 7 Sep 2006 Creating Futures: Influencing social determinants of mental health and well-being in rural, indigenous and island peoples, North Queensland
Health inequalities and the social determinants of health have become important drivers of health policy and practice internationally. In Australia this has been particularly obvious within public health and, more recently, mental health. However, the evidence base for effectively influencing these factors to secure improved mental health outcomes remains poor. This conference will focus particular attention to three groups of interest: residents of rural and remote communities, Indigenous populations (within Australia and elsewhere), and island nations experiencing social transition.

This 3-day conference takes place just before the IACAPAP 2006 Congress and is auspiced by the Section of Social and Cultural Psychiatry of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.

Venue: Cairns International Hotel, Queensland
