About the Event
Dr. Elizabeth Moore, Coordinator-General of the Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing, will speak about her early impressions of feedback from consultations on developing a shared vision and identifying key priorities for Mental Health and Wellbeing in the ACT.
The Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing has now been established. Consultations have been held to inform the development of a shared vision and the identification of priorities for mental health and wellbeing in the ACT. At this Forum, Dr. Moore will discuss her early impressions of the feedback received.
Dr Moore has been a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists for over 25 years and has worked in public, private and community settings in five states and territories. Dr Moore also volunteers with a not for profit organisation involved in youth mental health and multicultural wellbeing.
At the time of her appointment to her current role, Dr. Moore said “My focus for the Office will be underpinned by evidence-based care pathways and better coordination of services across all sectors to promote mental health recovery.
“I am also looking forward to helping create the Territory-wide mental health services needed to meet the needs of the community, from prevention and early intervention through to rehabilitation and recovery.
“To do this I’ll be working closely with carers and consumers, mental health service providers, experts in the sectors and across all ACT Government directorates to raise the prominence of and make changes to enhance mental health.”
