Each year, MHA's Annual Conference brings together affiliates, consumers, providers, family members and advocates from across the country to talk about important and emerging mental health issues. MHA's 2019 Annual Conference Dueling Diagnoses: Mental Health and Chronic Conditions in Children and Adults will focus on understanding underlying factors that lead to both physical and mental health concerns in children and adults; recognizing and distinguishing the symptoms and characteristics of the mental health conditions that may be present in people with physical, intellectual, and cognitive conditions and limitations; and developing and identifying strategies that can be used by individuals, advocates, and providers across conditions to work on behalf of the whole person and move everyone along pathways to recovery, as we define those.

Waiora, an indigenous Māori concept, refers to the interconnectedness of our physical and spiritual worlds with our own environment. 

As a theme, Waiora reflects the dependence of our own health on that of our planet, and recognises the major global challenge of balancing ongoing development with environmental stewardship.
