EML team members Kirsty Smith and Simon Bailey attended and exhibited at the PTS17 International Forum in Brisbane on 8-9 September.

Members of the Defence Force, National Emergency Services and leading international researchers in the area of post-traumatic stress attended and presented at the event.

This was the second International Forum for PTS, designed to bring together people and organisations to share knowledge and advancements in treatment for this illness.

EML took the opportunity to release our series of Recovery after Trauma Guides, developed by Phoenix Australia: Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health to attendees. These guides provide workers with information and support after a potentially traumatic event.
