a word from the commissioner
A word from the Commissioner

The Mental Health Commission of NSW was established in July 2012 as an independent body which helps drive reform that benefits people who experience mental illness and their families and carers.

The Commission is working with the community towards sustained improvement in the support offered to people who experience mental illness and in their access to employment, education, housing, justice and general health care.

Mental illness will affect half of us during our lifetimes, and as many as one in five any year. Many people who experience mental illness are unable to find the support they need, and mental health and social services can be fractured, frustrating and sometimes frightening.

The NSW Government has asked the Mental Health Commission of NSW to prepare a draft Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW, reflecting the experiences, hopes and priorities of people across the state. We thank you for being involved in this consultation and encourage you to have your say.

John Feneley
