STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

We are committed to two-way open communication that involves listening to our stakeholders, keeping them informed and being clear about how their contributions are being used. Our stakeholders include service providers, consumers and carers, academics and peak bodies. We value the voice of people with lived experience of mental illness as critical to informed development in the sector.   

 

 

We seek to: 

  • facilitate effective collaboration and knowledge sharing 

  • establish a consistent approach to stakeholder engagement  

  • support improved planning and informed policies, programmes and services. 
     

How to get involved 

 

Community Quarterly Forums 

Quarterly Forums are designed to bring the mental health community together to discuss and debate mental health policy and program issues. We encourage the attendance of members, employees and volunteers of member organisations, clinicians, researchers, people with lived experience and carers. Forums are hosted in partnership with the ACT Mental Health Consumer Network and Carers ACT to ensure robust dialogue and balanced stakeholder representation. 

If you have feedback or a topic idea for an upcoming forum, please contact charlie.richardson@mhccact.org.au 

 

Consumer Carer Caucus 

The Consumer Carer Caucus is a forum for people with lived experience of mental illness to share insights and participate in MHCC ACT’s work. Caucus brings together mental health consumers and carers and offers a safe platform to discuss issues, share information and provide expert lived and living experience strategic advice to the MHCC in order to remove barriers that consumer and carers encounter within the mental health sector. Caucus meets monthly in The Griffin Centre, Genge Street, Canberra City, ACT 2601.  To find out more about consumer and carer engagement in our organisation or to attend a Caucus meeting, please phone us on (02) 6249 7756 or email caucus@mhccact.org.au

 

Executive Officers and Managers meetings 

These meetings give Executive Officers and Managers of community mental health and other community organisations the opportunity to discuss developments and issues.  They are a way that we can increase sector connections and share knowledge across the community organisation. 

If you are a EO or manager of a community organisation that is interested in mental health issues and would like to be involved in these meetings, please contact Simon Viereck on 6249 7756 or email simon.viereck@mhccact.org.au to discuss your participation in these meetings.
