Current Advocacy Projects
There is no place like home! Survey for Consumers
NSW CAG wants to find out the different types of living situations mental health consumers are in, the types of housing support to which people with a mental illness have access and consumers’ perspectives on the relationship between recovery and having a place to call home. We have developed an online survey to help us to learn about mental health consumers’ experiences with housing and related support services, including what’s working and why and what needs improving.

Ageing and Mental Health
NSW CAG is currently looking at the issues affecting older people with mental illness, and would like to gather information to inform our work in this area. We hope to speak to as many older mental health consumers or their carers as we possibly can over the coming months. For more details please click here.
