i have made the decision to redirect my focus since leaving St Vincents.
To help with that and to comply with the CAN-SPAM ACT I have decided to ask people who have received information previously to complete the signup form.
The areas the eNews sheets will focus on includes information on:
Team Marbles Challenge
Promoting Recovery Month
The information from the eNews will also be sent to several blogs, Facebook and twitter pages
A picture tells a 1000 words, each of the images have links to more information and i would encourage you to click on the image to find out more about topics that interest you.
This will also assist with understanding the sort of information are looking at as the eNews list grows
Why the new Direction?
There are numerous bits of unfished businessfrom 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
