Mental Health Coordinating Council is pleased to launch our Annual Report for 2021-22.
We are proud to have supported and advocated for the community-managed mental health sector during another challenging year for all.
As the demand for mental health support services increased, our members continued to work and support the needs of people living with mental health conditions. We would like to acknowledge their commitment, dedication and resilience in the face of such challenging and difficult times.
Our report outlines the key projects, resources and initiatives we worked on in the last financial year, as we continued to champion a strong community mental health sector.
Key highlights from the results of our 2021 Member Survey showed:
100% of our members agreed MHCC leads and advocates for a strong community mental health sector.
100% of members agree MHCC builds the capacity of community-managed organisations through delivery training, developing resources and holding networking events.
We thank our member organisations for their ongoing support and advice, our MHCC Chair Judi Higgins, the MHCC Board and our partner organisations.
We extend a big thank you to the hard work and commitment of MHCC’s dedicated staff.
