Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

How can the workforce be expanded, shaped, or changed to provide best practice services?

How does peer support and advocacy fit within best practice?

How do consumer-led services & peer-led workforces operate and how can they be better recognised?

How does society pay for Best Practice in the private, public and NGO sectors?

How can mental health services be supported to provide best practice through co-ordination of services and benchmarking with others?

How does access to local primary care provide a better reality for consumers and families?

How do we address stigma in terms of recovery, re-ablement and empowerment?
