the national mental health consumer organisation establishment project
A range of draft governance and operational resources for a future organisation were developed through the Project.
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.
