A National Combined Voice for Mental Health Consumers and Carers
In September 2015, the National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum signed its second MOU with the National Mental Health Commission. This document reflects the partnership between the two organisations to help encourage sector collaboration, enable the voices and experiences of people living with mental health issues, their families and supporters, to inform policy and to drive informed improvements in the systems and services that provide support.
In the coming year we look forward to working together on empowering and supporting self-care through promotion of best practice and integrated models of care within primary health networks and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Organisations.
