ACT Mental Health Sector Update - Dec 2018

Our last sector update for 2018 is brimming with information and events happening within the mental health sector.

Volunteering and Contact ACT have created two very helpful resources to support people in need over the holiday season. Access these resources in the newsletter, see link below.

The ACT Minister for Mental Health, Shane Rattenbury announced the implementation of the redesigned ACT Government adult community mental health services for Canberra which we highlight in this update.

See a broad range of upcoming events in this update including the 2019 TheMHS Summer Forum, International Mental Health Conference and Mental Health and Wellbeing of Young People Conference. See the full sector update here.

Please note our MHCC ACT will be closed from Thursday 20 December and will reopen again from Monday 7 January 2019. We thank you for your support during the year and wish you a joyful, happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
