Annual Issues and Opportunities Workshop

Each year, Mental Health Australia hosts an Annual Issues and Opportunities Workshop for members of the National Register of Mental Health Consumer and Carer Representatives (National Register) and the National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum (NMHCCF).

This workshop aims to further develop the representative skills of mental health consumers and carers already participating in national policy initiatives. In particular, the workshops are designed to develop representatives’ advocacy, policy development and leadership skills. The workshops also provide important networking opportunities for representatives.

The 2020 Annual Issues and Opportunities Workshop was initially meant to be held in May, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the two-day face-to-face workshop was not possible, so the 2020 Annual Issues and Opportunities Workshop will occur across the year as a webinar series.

These reports provide highlights from the webinars and a summary of the key themes and outcomes raised by mental health consumers and carers during the workshop sessions or through the subsequent evaluation survey.
