Today is an historic day in the mental health consumer movement with the announcement of the formation of the National Consumer Peak Alliance.
After many years of discussion and at the request of consumers across the country we have today committed to the establishment of a National Consumer Peak Alliance led and owned by state peak bodies that will influence, lead and advocate on behalf of people who experience mental health challenges.
The National Alliance includes peak bodies from
- Victorian Mental Illness Awareness Council (VMIAC)
- Being (NSW Consumer Advisory Group )
- Consumers of Mental health WA (CoMHWA)
- ACT MH Consumer network
- SA lived experience leadership and advocacy network
- Flourish Tasmania
