It’s just under a year since the release of the Living Well: A Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW 2014-2024 to reform the NSW mental health sector and facilitate improved mental health and wellbeing for all of us in NSW.
We’d like to hear from you as to what you think about the Plan, your experience of implementation and how you think mental health reform is progressing.
Whether you work for a government agency or a community managed organisation, or if you have a lived experience of mental illness or are a carer, your views are important to us and will help us form a picture of progress.
To participate, just start the survey now.
We look forward to hearing your views and thank you in advance for your participation.
