The National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum (NMHCCF) is a combined national voice for mental health consumers and carers. We listen, learn, influence and advocate in matters of mental health reform.
NMHCCF members represent mental health consumers and carers on a large number of national bodies, including government committees and advisory groups, professional bodies and other consultative forums and events.
Members use their lived experience, understanding of the mental health system and communication skills to advocate and promote the issues and concerns of consumers and carers.
Based on our knowledge of consumer and carer issues, we produce a number of publications on matters important to consumers and carers written from their perspective. These include:
We also use our skills and resources as representatives on national committees and working groups.
