ACT Mental Health Sector Update - Jan19

Updated: Jan 30, 2019

2019 has started off as another busy year in the area of mental health here in the ACT.

In this issue of the ACT Mental Health Sector Update we look at a new study by the ANU Centre for Mental Health Research, which has found similar results in the rollout of the NDIS in the ACT as we, MHCC ACT found in our report 'When the NDIS came to the ACT' released about 6 months ago. In other news, an additional $56 million annually in Federal funding to Primary Health Networks for Mental Health and short term accommodation/respite for people with mental ill health in Kambah and O'Connor. Upcoming events include Self-advocacy and Consumer Representation Training & a PTSD Awareness Workshop on multiple dates between now and July, 2019.
