POLICY & ADVOCACY
Influencing the development of policy, particularly in the form of submissions to all levels of government, is central to the work of MHCC ACT. We are informed in this by undertaking regular consultations with service providers, consumers and carers to provide an influential and trusted voice on mental health policy on behalf of our members and the community. Our involvement with Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA) and relationships with academia are other key aspects of our policy work.
We directly engage with the ACT Government and the Capital Health Network in the development of mental health policies and reforms, as well as program implementation. This often entails participation in various committees and consultation processes.
MHCC ACT constantly seeks opportunities to promote and advocate for mental health and wellbeing in the ACT.
