The Mental Health Council of Australia hosted a forum for mental health consumers, carers, community workers, counsellors, doctors, nurses to provide input to the Coordinated Care measure announced in this year’s budget. The CEO of the Mental Health Council of Australia, Mr Frank Quinlan said, “Having achieved some pretty significant investments in the most recent Commonwealth budget, we are eager to ensure that the money is spent wisely and effectively. The best way to do that is to bring those making the policy together with those affected by the policy.”

Submission

The National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum and the MHCA strongly support the development and implementation of a National Carer Strategy, in particular a consideration of issues for specific groups, as their needs and issues are quite distinct form other carers.
