MHiMA Update - NCCCWG and Project Advisory Group Workshops

MHiMA Team - Friday, February 19, 2016

Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:

Thank you to everyone who participated in the MHiMA Project public consultation. We received over 60 responses, with a last few still trickling in. The responses have provided us with a diverse and informative view of the MHiMA Project and multicultural mental health, and a range of suggestions for the future. Consultation feedback will inform the recommendations we provide to the Department of Health about possible future directions for the MHiMA Project. The recommendations report is due to the Department in late March 2016.

This week I met with the National CaLD Consumer and Carer Working Group (NCCCWG) and the Project Advisory Group, to discuss activities to date (including preliminary findings from the public consultation and the independent review of the Framework) and possible recommendations for the future of the MHiMA Project.  A special thank you to those who participated in each workshop – the days were productive, full of lively discussion and great ideas. I also want to acknowledge the passion, commitment and expertise members of the NCCCWG and the Project Advisory Group brought to the workshops and the support they’re providing to the MHiMA Project more broadly.

NCCCWG input into the MHiMA Project Consultation

The NCCCWG met with me and other Mental Health Australia staff on Wednesday in Canberra, as part of Mental Health Australia’s work around the future directions of the MHiMA Project.  NCCCWG members provided dedicated input from the CaLD consumer and carer perspective and their knowledge and expertise of the multicultural mental health sector.
