Policy and Advocacy
Our policy and advocacy work is based on consultation and engagement with the mental health sector, particularly with community-managed service providers and mental health consumers and carers, as well as through research and analysis.
We aim to develop sound, evidence-based, and sustainable policy positions on issues that impact on people with mental illness and their carers
We advocate for our policy positions through a number of avenues including our annual budget submission, submissions to inquiries and through position papers and other reports. In addition to this, other opportunities include in meetings with decision-makers and contributions and statements to the media. Through these various approaches we aim to influence government and other decision-makers and to further public understanding of the issues facing the mental health sector and encourage discussion.
