Conference paper

Visibility in rural Australia: the way forward for consumers and carers

4 Mar 2003

A large proportion of people with a mental health disorder do not access health services, which suggests a large unmet need for mental health services, the author argues. She discusses the establishment of the Mental Health Council of Australia, its principles of consumer and carer participation, the National Community Development project, the Enhancing Relationship project, the Carers of People with a Mental Illness project, the National Consumer and Carer Forum, the National Consumer and Carer Participation Policy template, and the investigation into discrimination against mental health consumers by the insurance industry. She also discusses issues confronting people with mental illness in rural Australia and the importance of partnerships.
