Historic meeting of non-government organisations influencing COAG plans for mental health, October 2012

The inaugural meeting of the Australian Council of Non-Government Organisations (CONGO) will see members of the sector discussing issues and challenges experienced by those designing and delivering mental health policy and services. Measureable action will be high on the agenda as the non-government mental health community comes together formally for the first time at Hotel Realm on Tuesday 9 October 2012.

“The inaugural meeting of CONGO is the first gathering of a collaboration that we hope will soon become recognised by governments around the country as a highly influential and vocal advocacy group for the mental health sector” says Frank Quinlan. “Non-government organisations are ready to assist COAG to implement urgent mental health reforms over the next decade.”
