Dear Friends, Colleagues and HITH Society Members,

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee and Executive, it is a pleasure to extend an invitation to join us at the 14th HITH Society Annual Scientific Meeting. The conference will be held in Tweed Heads from 16 to 18 November 2022 at the Twin Towns Convention Centre in Tweed Heads.

The annual HITH Conference has become a cornerstone of the HITH Calendar and is the must attend HITH event of the year and this will be even more so given it will be our first face-to-face event since 2019. The Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities to meet and interact with colleagues from Australia, New Zealand as well as our invited speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. The HITH society wish to hold this event face-to-face for all the major benefits this offers both attendees and sponsors. We would greatly appreciate your support in ensuring the event can run to service it’s members.

The theme of the Conference is Extending the Reach of HITH focusing on In-Reach and Out-Reach.

The HITH Conference organising committee aim to broaden the people engaged in HITH and the linkages with non-traditional HITH services. The program will explore sub-themes of: Women & Children; Staffing and models of care; and Profile, linkages and engagement.

Twin Towns Conference Centre is located in the heart of the Southern Gold Coast and Tweed, one of the most amazing beachside destinations in Australia. The border towns are relaxed, people are friendly, and world-famous beaches are just footsteps from the door. What’s more, Gold Coast Airport is just 10 minutes’ easy drive and onsite accommodation is available at Mantra Twin Towns.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting.


Thank you to our Strategic Sponsor Destination NSW for their support.
