About this consultation: The National Mental Health Commission (the Commission) is developing an overview of mental health consumer and carer engagement and participation in Australia. They seek to better understand what is important to people with lived experience of mental health issues, their families, friends and supporters in regards to engagement and participation. Full details about this consultation are available here.
