Mental Health Australia has been engaged by the Department of Health to manage the MHiMA Project until 31 December 2016. Key tasks during this timeframe include analysing the activities, arrangements and outputs of the most recent Project (to 30 June 2015, managed by another entity), and making recommendations to the Australian Government Department of Health about future directions for the MHiMA Project. In late March 2016 Mental Health Australia submitted a recommendations report to the Department of Health about the future of the Project. Government is currently considering the findings from this report. From July 2016 the Project will enter an interim maintenance phase that only allows for limited project activities.
Regular MHiMA Project updates are provided through the Mental Health Australia CEO Weekly Update (free subscription).

Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:
Members of the National CaLD Consumer and Carer Working Group (NCCCWG) gave presentations to consumer and carer delegates and guests at the National Register and NMHCCF Annual Workshop on 10 May. Presenters provided insights from their lived experience and knowledge of the current issues and experiences affecting CaLD consumers and carers and their families when accessing the mental health system. The topics included human rights, meaningful engagement for CaLD in mental health reforms, men’s mental health and wellbeing, parenting, fostering and adoption, and the CaLD perspective on recovery from mental illness. The presentation was well received and sparked discussion amongst National Register and NMHCCF members. Further information about the presentation is available on our website.
