NSWCAG regularly visits towns across the NSW to hear about the experiences of people who use mental health services. This information is used to inform the government about what needs to be done to provide better support and services for people with mental illness in NSW.
The consultations are run quite informally, and provide mental health consumers with an opportunity to have their say about the mental health system - what they do and don't like about the system, and what they think needs to change to ensure that all consumers experience equality in accessing services. Occasionally we will also host consultations which focus on specific issues, which will then influence NSWCAG's advocacy work.
Information about NSWCAG's upcoming consultations is updated regularly on the website, and also promoted through our network. If you, a consumer group, or your service is keen to host a community consultation in your local area, contact NSWCAG at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 9332 0200.
The consultations below are now closed.
