Position Statement - Social Participation and Mental Health

Social participation is about engaging with other people. It’s related to personal feelings of connectedness, and societal inclusion.

Social participation is important for everyone’s mental health and wellbeing, as well as supporting recovery for people with experience of mental ill-health.

This position statement outlines actions that governments and communities should take together to support social participation and mental health.

Mental Health Australia thanks the member organisations, people with lived experience of mental health challenges, carers, and researchers who all contributed to this position statement.
