2015 NSW Election
The NSW State Election will be held on 28th March 2015.
We’ve put together an Election Agenda to advise NSW politicians on how to make NSW a better State for people with a lived experience of mental illness. This is about many aspects of living well and is not limited to mental health service issues.
Our Election Agenda identifies six priorities that people with a lived experience of mental illness in NSW said the State Government needs to take action on:
- Inclusive and supportive communities
- Housing supply and public housing support
- Accessible and affordable transport
- Equitable employment opportunities and support
- Holistic and responsive legal assistance
- Mental health education and support for young people
To all political parties: we ask you to commit to the priorities in this Election Agenda.
To everyone living in NSW: we ask you to support our call for action – you can write to political parties and your local candidates and spread the word about this Election Agenda to your friends and family. You can also make a big difference in your community by taking proactive actions to be inclusive and supportive of people from all walks of life, including people who have a mental illness.
