Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Mental Health Australia acknowledges Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities as the traditional custodians of the land we work on and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. Mental Health Australia is committed to reconciliation in Australia through day-to-day work and our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Mental Health Australia also acknowledges the continuous advocacy efforts and co-design by mental health consumers and carers, past and present. As an inclusive organisation we also celebrate people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, cultures, bodies and abilities.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Mental Health Australia
Workplace equity, diversity and inclusion are a priority for Mental Health Australia and we strive to create an inclusive culture and work practices in which differences are recognised and valued. By bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and giving everyone the opportunity to contribute their skills, experience and perspectives we are in the best position to represent and promote the interests of the Australian mental health sector.
In 2019, Mental Health Australia formally created a Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, dedicated to ensuring equity, diversity and inclusion is embedded across all of the organisation’s activities.
