Hi valued carers,

Welcome to the belated-February newsletter (and no, we totally did not forget this was a shorter month and leave it to the last minute…who said that!). It’s been another busy month for us here at MHCV. Over the last month we’ve continued to work towards making a difference in the mental health policy and advocacy space. Highlights for the month include;

  • Attending the Senate Committee for Education and Employment as witnesses on their inquiry into school refusal.
  • Hosting our Advocacy and Policy Advisory Group for the first time this year (scroll down for more info on how you can get involved in this wonderful group).
  • Joining Child/Youth Mental Health Services Network and contributing our expertise to this network.
  • Liaised with our stakeholders attending the meetings with ACT government, Canberra Hospital and various NGOs.

As always, your voice is important to us, and we welcome your feedback. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at

All the best,

Catherine Joseph and Catherine Vonarx,

The Mental Health Carers Voice Team
