The Langi Ma’a Symposium is Tonga’s first ever meeting that brings together all stakeholders on mental health and disabilities in Tonga to start a formal dialogue to understand mental health issues, learn about available treatment and support services available and lastly to discuss the interaction between mental health and Tonga Culture.
The objective is to understand the state and place of mental health in Tonga, what is working, what is not, and to bring together relevant stakeholders to propose improvements to our mental health system.
The Symposium was officially opened by the Australian High Commissioner to Tonga, His Excellency Andrew Ford on Monday, 9th October at the Tanoa International Hotel, Nuku'alofa. For more details about the Symposium 2017, please visit the Langi Ma'a website.
