As part of the national mental health reform agenda the National Mental Health, the National Mental Health Commission is developing a national strategy to address mental health-related stigma and discrimination.
The Commission is calling for feedback from a broad range of stakeholders to ensure the Draft Strategy drives a meaningful reduction in experiences of stigma and discrimination both in and beyond health and mental health sectors.
The Commission has released a Draft Strategy, and is inviting feedback from a broad range of stakeholders, including:
counsellors, psychotherapists, health professionals, social services, business owners, educators, and legal and financial services.
people with lived experience of mental ill-health, trauma, distress or suicidality
families, carers and support people
The consultation period on the draft strategy will close on 1 February 2023.
