What do the words 'Mental Health Literacy' mean to you?

Health professionals sometimes use words and medical terms that are hard to understand, and trying to get access to the right services or information can be difficult. Sound familiar?

In 2019, the Mental Health Commission of NSW held community workshops around NSW looking at how to improve communication and mental health services.

In response to recommendations from the workshop we would like to help our local communities take charge of their own mental health and wellbeing. WentWest, as the Sydney Primary Health Network, is inviting you to be part of this change.

The Mental Health Literacy Initiative project is a chance for us to come back together to explore new ways of providing mental health services and information.

If you’re a carer, a person with lived experience, or someone who has been affected by mental health and/or substance use, we want to hear from you.

Community participants will be encouraged to provide feedback and have a strong voice in the design of new ideas for our region. This project will be a safe, inclusive and respectful experience where everyone’s opinions matter.
