Welcome to the 2022 Helen Mayo House Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Annual Conference! We are delighted once again to meet with you on Kaurna land at the magnificent Adelaide Convention Centre, on the banks of Karrawirra Pari/ River Torrens

With the theme “The First 1000 Days for Everybody – Connecting, Decolonising, Innovating”, we will gather a host of interesting and thought-provoking speakers in Plenary and Break-out Sessions to enrich your knowledge and your work. We expect to meet face-to-face with livestream options also available.

New Livestream Option: We hope and expect to be able to gather in person, while also offering a livestream option for those who cannot do so. Please note, the livestream will take place only from the main Plenary room, so only one break-out session option will be available to livestream participants in the morning and afternoon sessions – information about which break-out session will be livestreamed will be available closer to the date of the Conference. On Day 2 the workshop will be livestreamed from the main plenary room. Recordings of the conference proceedings will be available to all registrants after the conference.

COVID-19 Disruptions: In the event of COVID-19 -related changes to the program, we will advise you of the options as soon as possible, including refunds if you prefer not to take part in a virtual conference.

Introduction to the Program: Our Keynote Lecture in the Morning Plenary is being delivered by the program Leads of “Baby Coming you Ready”?, a brilliant tech-assisted rubric developed in Western Australia to embed culturally safe, person-led perinatal care for First Nations families. They will follow this up with an extended workshop on Day 2, in an interactive multimedia presentation that will provide a hands-on exploration of this program. This will equip clinicians with immediate techniques and skills to use, which could later be built upon to implement the full program in South Australia’s health-care settings.

We look forward to seeing you there.
