Why the new Direction?

For me there are numerous bits of unfinished business from when i moved down to Sydney in 1996 that i feel still need to be addressed in NSW.  

Just to mention a few :
  • Consumer Run Organisation's are not a intergal part of the mental health System
  • Recognition of the people who have created the space that some Consumer and Carers enjoy the benefits at the Government sponsored table. Can you name any of the original members of NSW CAG when it started in 1993
  • In our current strategic directions at both a National and State level the Hearing Voices approach is not mentioned
  • Where would you find a list of the people who are speaking on our behalf at that Government table 
The Charter for Mental Health Care in NSW was first released in 1996 in a report titled From Consumer to Citizen.

One of the tasks Project independence would like to do in 2017 is create an audit to see how people feel we are doing with the charter - if you would like to be involved you can contact Ossie Rights at
