A National Combined Voice for Mental Health Consumers and Carers
Memorandum of Understanding with the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations
On Tuesday 28 June 2016, a Memorandum of Understanding between the National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum (NMHCCF) and the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) was signed.
The Memorandum of Understanding commits the NMHCCF and AFDO to actively seek out opportunities for joint effort, co-production and cross-promotion of work, to support people with psychosocial disability, mental health issues and physical/intellectual disability and their carers. We will work together to set a meaningful standard for others to follow that enshrines the inclusion of people with lived experience of mental health issues and psychosocial disability, their families and support people in policy decision making, planning, implementation and service delivery.
