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 Development

Our aim is to assist the community-managed mental health sector with the provision of efficient, effective and connected services, delivering relevant services and programs, with strong governance, leadership and partnerships. To achieve this we focus on:

  • Training, chiefly through Skills Fund brokerage
  • Opportunities for networking and peer learning particularly through the Mental Health Leaders meetings and Regional Mental Health Group meetings and ¬†workshops on¬†current issues.
  • Providing access to resources that support good practice.
  • Advocacy for public policy that ensures community service organisations can perform their roles in a well-resourced and accountable environment based on what the sector tells us they need to stay effective, efficient and connected.
