ACT Mental Health Sector Update: 20 May 2021
In this edition, we invite you to celebrate the success of the ACT Recovery College trial as it comes to an end. We also encourage you to apply for a Mental Health Month reimbursement grant to help you host an event in October 2021. We share information, articles and details on the mental health funding from the Federal Budget last week, and look at what is being said regarding the NDIS and NDIA Act potential changes. Read about the Safe and Connected Youth program pilot and evaluation. There is an opportunity to attend information sessions on the Disability Royal Commission.
There is also a list of interesting mental health resources and articles for further reading along with training, forums and job opportunities listed below. To make sure you keep safe, take note of the latest COVID-19 advice from ACT Health, and can find information regarding the vaccine rollout.
