ACT Mental Health Sector Update: 6 May 2021
In this edition, we sadly announce the end of the 2-year ACT Recovery College Trial and celebrate its success. We invite you to be a part of the CMHA survey to inform submissions for the Consultation on the National Safety and Quality Mental Health Standards for Community Managed Organisations. Let’s celebrate the agreement to include minimum standards for accessible housing into the National Construction Code. You can reflect upon the response from the NDIA to the Joint standing committee, Learn about the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide, and read about the state of Australia’s mental health system.
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.
Our Member Spotlight this edition is Barnados Australia’s Canberra Centre.
