Information

Why do we need the Australian Mental Health Consumer Network?

  • We need a national voice in mental health service planning, delivery and evaluation
  • We need to be participants in the formulation of State and Federal laws
  • We need to be directly in touch with fellow consumers
  • We need to promote consumer based research about our opinions
  • We need to be informed of our rights
  • We need to know the effects of medications and to have our feedback recognised
  • We need to be able to make informed choices about our treatment options
  • We need access and input to a range of holistic rehabilitation options


Consumers of mental health services deserve a voice that is:

  • Responsive
  • Consistent
  • Coherent
  • Supportive
  • Accountable

The Australian Mental Health Consumer Network is our first, best chance to achieve this.


Our key words:

  • Access
  • Equity
  • Communication
  • Integrity
  • Dignity
  • Confidentiality
  • Accountability
  • Social Justice
