Mental health families & friends TASMANIA provides systemic advocacy from a carer/family perspective drawing upon lived experience to improve mental health services and the well-being of carers. Mental health carers are central to everything we do at mental health families & friends TASMANIA. Our purpose is to make sure the voices of mental health families and friends are heard. We work with families and friends to support them and to champion their needs and aspirations. In order to be effective, we need to ensure that our approach to engagement is appropriate, inclusive and influential.
We provide input into state and national research, policy review and development. We are active members of TASCOSS and Mental Health Carers Australia.
