The National Mental Health Consumer Organisation (NMHCO) Establishment Project (Completed May 2015)

The NMHCO Establishment Project worked towards establishing a new national peak organisation for mental health consumers. The Consumer Reference Group (CRG) and Mental Health Australia worked in partnership to develop the foundations for a sustainable organisation built on good governance, governed by and for, people with lived experience of mental illness and mental health issues.

The Project commenced in June 2012 and finished at the end of May 2015. Unfortunately, ongoing funding has not yet been secured to launch the organisation.

Resources developed through the NMHCO Establishment Project are available here. Communiques providing historical information about project activities are available here.
