Mental Health

12 May 2015

Recent tragic events and media reports have again reminded us about the poor resourcing of mental health services, and particularly early intervention and prevention programs. I was pleased to speak at the ‘So You Want to Change The World’ forum last Friday, which highlighted the Kansas Consumer Advisory Council’s model of trauma-informed care that addresses serious trauma that helps causes ongoing mental illness and distress but can also be used to help recovery and transformation. 

Next week 17-23 May is Schizophrenia Awareness Week, with events across NSW. Further details are available HERE.
