National Mental Health Commission – Open Community Meeting

Posted: September 7th, 2022

The National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) recently launched the Making Connections for your Mental Health and Wellbeing program. As part of the program, the NMHC are holding community meetings around the nation to hear first-hand from community members about their experience of the mental health and suicide prevention systems, what needs to be improved and what measures are a priority for each community.

On Tuesday 20 September, the NMHC will be holding a community meeting in Geraldton from 5.30 – 7.00pm at QE2 Seniors and Community Centre, 88 Durlacher Street, Geraldton.  

This meeting is open to all members of the public and the information from the community conversations will be used to inform the work of the Commission and to report back to state and federal Health Ministers.

For catering purposes, and for reporting back to participants, please register by clicking on this link or by phoning 1800 220 246.

If you are unable to attend a community meeting, the National Connections Survey provides an opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences. You can also share your story with the NMHC here.

More information on the program, community meetings and survey can be found at the Making Connections 2022 website.
