On 16 December at 7.30 – 9.00PM



The Australian Mental Health Commission are stretching their thinking to envisage the long-term future when Australians at risk of, or experiencing mental health concerns and suicidality can access a connected and well-functioning system.

Since July 2019 The Commission has travelled to over 26 communities across Australia to hold Town Hall meetings of which anyone with a living experience of mental health; consumers, carers, families and those organisations which provide support and care, were invited to attend. They also launched an online survey to allow all Australians to contribute to the conversation and Vision 2030. Overall, connecting with over 3000 people.

The Jewish community is fortunate to have Rabbi Mendel Kastel OAM as a commissioner on the National Mental Health Commission.  His inclusion and hands-on experience gives us as a community an opportunity to express our hopes, wishes and experiences in our dealings with family/friends or community members who suffer mental health issues.

Our community has been invited to take part in this important discussion of Vision 2030 with a panel of Commissioners including Lucy Brogden, Christine Morgan and Rabbi Mendel Kastel. These commissioners are dedicated to working towards a more equitable system with services that meet the needs of our community and their families experiencing mental health issues. Christine Morgan is the advisor to the Prime Minister on Mental Health Issues

Please join us for this instructive and enlightening discussion and let your opinion count where it matters most.
