ACT Office for Mental Health

MHCC ACT is currently involved in shaping a model for the new ACT Office for Mental Health.

The Office, a commitment of the Labor and Greens 2016 Parliamentary Agreement, will provide oversight to create a more coordinated, integrated and effective ACT mental health system.

Alongside key community mental health service providers, MHCC ACT has the opportunity to shape and influence the design of the new Office; determine its roles, responsibilities, functions and structure.

Recovery College

We regret to inform you that the bid for funding for the establishment of a Recovery College in Canberra was unsuccessful.

The Recovery College Steering Group and MHCC ACT remain committed to finding a way to take this project forward so that a Recovery College for Canberra can be a reality in the future.

We thank everyone in the community who extended their support to this project.

Project Report
A design concept for the Recovery College was informed and developed through a series of consultation workshops in 2017. To learn about the proposed design click here.
