Our workforce development strategy was supported by the ACT Government and launched in 2012 by Chief Minister Katy Gallagher.
Sector development is a core area of our work.
We engage in a range of activities to benefit our members, including training, policy development and implementation support, workshops, and forums.
MHCC ACT regular forums include:
• Quarterly Community Forum (in partnership with ACT Mental Health Consumers Network, Carers ACT and ACT Health)
• Mental Health and NDIS Transition Forum (in partnership with National Disability Insurance Agency and ACT Health)
• Community Mental Health Sector Executive Officers and Managers Group

In partnership with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Mental Health Services Champions Group, we recently organised held a series of workshops for support coordinators from community organisations to discuss practical solutions to implement individual funding packages for people with psychosocial disability.
These popular hands-on workshops drew on the experience and knowledge of participants and were facilitated by Pieta Manning, Director of Your Plan, Your Way. People who attended the workshops said they gained better understand the NDIS price guide and how to implement individual funding packages in a creative way to get the best possible outcome for consumers.
