We are the peak body representing the community managed mental health sector in the ACT. Our aim is to foster the capacity of the sector to deliver quality, sustainable, recovery-oriented services to support people with mental health issues and their carers.
This aim is underpinned by our work in mental health policy development; workforce training; sector coordination; and initiatives to promote the critical role of community services in facilitating recovery and enhancing wellbeing.
MHCC ACT is funded by the ACT Government and works in partnership with Carers ACT and the ACT Mental Health Consumer Network to ensure that our work is informed by the needs of consumers and carers.
MHCC ACT is a member of Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA). Together with other state and territory peak community mental health organisations, CMHA represents a unified voice for over 800 community-based, non-Government organisations delivering services to the millions of people affected by mental illness across Australia.
MHCC ACT is accredited at Certificate Level of the Australian Service Excellence Standards (ASES).
