Perspectives Newsletter - March/April 2015. There was a strong sense of unity a month ago when representatives from across the mental health sector met with parliamentarians en masse for a day of advocacy surrounding mental health. Rather than speaking solely about local issues, representatives presented a cohesive message, united as one voice, calling for change in the way we approach the mental health system. The delegates included leaders from mental health organisations, as well as consumer and carers. They presented three key messages to forty-seven Members and Senators from across the political spectrum, asking for clarity on the direction of mental health in Australia.
