I have met some remarkable people through collaboration and co-design. Having a safe space to speak about our feelings reduces isolation and stigma. A network of carers that builds genuine connection will help make us feel stronger together
Connection and sharing information are more important than ever.
The Mental Health Carer Connections Meeting is a space for mental health carers, families, and friends of people with mental health issues to work together.
We share issues happening at a grass roots level, connect with each other, talk about what advocacy is, how we can work together to identify and address carer issues, and what supports are available.
These meetings are facilitated by our dedicated Peer Network Facilitator: a peer worker with decades of experience in the mental health sector and advocacy. These meetings help MHCN identify issues for systemic advocacy by guiding us on areas that we need to focus our attention on.
How can I attend?
To attend a meeting, you need to be an Individual Member of MHCN’s free Mental Health Carer Advocacy Network. When you fill out your membership form below, select ‘Attend a monthly meeting’ from the list of activities you would like to be involved with.
Our Facilitator will then be in touch with meeting details and resources.
We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
