Grow is attending the Parliamentary Advocacy Day and Members Policy Forum

Grow is attending the Parliamentary Advocacy Day and Members Policy Forum

In attendance will be a total of 45 MPs and Senators who have accepted the invitation to meet with delegates from Mental Health Australia to discuss our reform agenda. Thanks to all our members and friends who are attending the day, Mental Health Australia have 18 separate delegations scheduled to meet with the various Senators and MPs and we are hopeful that the day will result in a heightened awareness of mental health issues in the lead up to this year’s Federal Budget. 

The key messages for the day will be; the need for a bi-partisan 10 year plan for mental health reform; the urgent release of the National Mental Health Commission’s report into mental health; and, the provision of certainty for people who are currently using services, or entitled to use service in the midst of the current funding uncertainty.
