The Mental Health Council of Tasmania (MHCT) is a member based peak body. We represent and promote the interests of community managed mental health services and have a strong commitment to enabling better access and outcomes for every Tasmanian.

Sector Reform Engagement

Working closely with the Mental Health Alcohol and Drug Directorate (MHADD), Primary Health Tasmania (PHT) and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA),  MHCT links in with these agencies in order to be able to communicate with members and the broader community on the implementation of the reform agenda.

The aim is to inform and communicate about government policy reform at both the state and national levels in the mental health sector. MHCT advises and provides feedback to the relevant stakeholders about the impacts and implications of policy reform including increasing public and community awareness.

This type of work is a new direction for MHCT commencing in April 2017
