MHiMA is committed to creating ways for the project to meaningfully consult with a range of stakeholders.  

National consultations in 2012

Between March and May 2012, MHiMA undertook national consultations, by convening meetings in each state and territory. For a summary, view here. These discussions informed the development of MHiMA's Strategic Plan, 2012 - 2014: Building Capacity & Supporting Inclusion. Almost 250 people took part and some Melbourne-based participants generously shared their experience of the day in the following video. 

A communications strategy

A more specific communications consultation  was also undertaken in early 2012 and informed the development of MHiMA's communication strategy.  Click here for an overview.
