Event description

Description

Mental Health is one of Cystic Fibrosis Australia's key objectives. Living with a chronic disease is difficult at the best of times, add in the additional stresses of everyday life - like holding down a job, paying bills, raising a family, plus heart breaking life moments like losing friends and family members, drug affordability and consistent monitoring of your health and it’s no wonder that many chronic diseases are now extended to show their impact on mental health and general wellbeing.

It is extremely important that health professionals in Australian CF Clinics are qualified and well trained in identifying and caring for people with CF and a mental health condition. We also believe there is so much information that should be made available for people with CF, their families, carers and friends.

We are delighted to bring two exceptional mental health professionals from the United States - Alexandra Quittner (Miami) and Anna Georgiopolous (Boston) to Australia to train our health professionals across the country in CF specific mental health. They will also be establishing the Mental Health Trial that we are running in Newcastle over the next few years.

Sessions will be held in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, Adelaide and Sydney and are free to attend (but pre-registration is required). Session One will be for all CF Centre staff, Session Two will train staff directly involved in mental health support, diagnosis and interventions and Session Three is for the community. Infection control guidelines allow us to have one person with CF at each event. With this in mind, some sessions for the CF Community will be streamed to ensure people with CF and those who live too far away can still participate in the training.
