Strategic Planning

MHCC undertakes strategic planning across four key priorities and areas of activity:

  • Sector Development
    The community managed mental health sector is a changing and dynamic environment. MHCC works to build the capacity of the sector to meet current challenges and make the most of emerging opportunities. 
  • Policy Leadership, Influence and Reform
    There is an increasing focus on the delivery of mental health and other human services from a community base. MHCC actively engages with government, key service delivery and advocacy groups, both state and federal, to ensure people with lived experience have access to well resourced and person centred services.
  • Research and Development
    The evidence base for the work of the community managed mental health sector requires ongoing development. MHCC will look for opportunities, partnerships, collaborations and other ways to promote or conduct relevant research and evaluation activities.
  • Organisational Development
    Central to the MHCC's capacity to deliver on its commitments is ensuring it is a sustainable organisation and, beyond this, becomes an employer of choice.

More information about MHCC's work accross the four key priority areas is available throughout this site.

Monitoring the strategic plan

The MHCC Board is responsible for monitoring implementation of this plan. A full audit will be conducted every 12 months and adjustments made in response to the changing mental health environment.
