ACT Mental Health Sector Update - 28 November 2019

In this edition:

...MHCC ACT is looking for two exceptional people to fill current vacancies. Wesley Mission Youth survey highlights mental health as key concern, and why young adults feel lonely and anxious. How does access to basic services impact on success in life, and what Royal Commissions reveal about society and vulnerable people. Do the survey on the ACT Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan. Read a first person account of trauma and its repercussions or go to a Rebus Theatre production on love and disability. How does Australia fair in an international benchmarking study into mental health services? Volunteers wanted to study impacts of ECT. Learn about 'Sober in the country' and the dearth of services for addiction for rural Australians. Call for abstracts for the NDIS conference extended; changes to the NDIS recently announced; NDIA CEO speaks; the NDIA apologises for long delays; and a tool for self advocacy in the NDIS. Finally, have your say in developing a national obesity strategy.
