THE NSW Mental Health Commission hosted a community consultation in Newcastle on Thursday to guide a review of mental health reform in the state.
The workshop called on people with lived experience of mental health issues, as well as carers, families and kinship groups, and representatives from local health districts and service providers to help inform future priorities, and discuss challenges and successful local initiatives in mental health and well-being.
The Newcastle workshop was part of state-wide consultations hosted by the Commission to inform the review of Living Well: A Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW 2014 - 2024 - a 10-year plan for mental health reform in NSW.
The Commission also hosted a consultation session in Singleton on Wednesday, and will move to Gosford on Friday.
