The NDIS National Mental Health Conference is calling for posters that cover the following areas with a focus on psychosocial disability and the NDIS:

  • effective practice approaches

  • program evaluations

  • service innovations

  • lived experience perspectives

Submission guidelines

Posters provide an opportunity to visually display research innovations and emerging practices to the sector nationally. A poster should be as self-explanatory as possible containing information that is clear, structured and appealing. The ideal poster submission will express content in a simple and concise manner.


Clearness and structure

The title and authors’ names and affiliations should be at the bottom of the poster. Although there is room for flexibility this is preferred. Diagrams, photos, graphs and tables can also be used to effectively convey your message.



As space is very limited, be sure to present the most important information only and effectively. Don’t overcrowd the poster with too much data or too much text.



Be aware that your poster is also viewed from a distance. For optimal impact text should be large enough to be read from a distance of about 1.5 m. The major titles/subtitles should be in large letters, at least 2-3 cm. And there should be enough space between text lines (1.5 – 2 line spaces).


General Considerations

The size of your poster should be A3-A0 in portrait format
