The Australian Government has announced an inquiry into mental health.
The inquiry will examine the effect of mental health on people’s ability to participate in and prosper in the community and workplace, and the effects it has more generally on our economy and productivity.
It will look at how governments across Australia, employers, professional and community groups in healthcare, education, employment, social services, housing and justice can contribute to improving mental health for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
The Commission will be consulting widely, including in regional Australia and are considering how to most effectively receive input from particular groups such as consumers and carers.
Blue Voices members will be kept up to date with opportunities to get involved as they arise.
